Worcester School Committee meeting preview (September 17)

Cross-posted from Tracy’s blog.

…and we have my favorite report of the year: the Opening of School Report! (The backup on this isn’t up yet; I’ll link to it once it is.)

The agenda is here.

We have another round of the back-to-school hiring reports!

City Solicitor Moore is letting us know that, though Council talks about it frequently, he doesn’t have a recent report on the legality of hiring with a preference for Worcester residents.

Mr. Monfredo wants to recognize South High for being on Channel 5.

Mr. O’Connell is re-opening the discussion about parking around May Street School (specifically, around what was Temple Emanuel and now is owed by Worcester State).

I’ve asked that we consider supporting Senator Moore’s Senate Bill 321, regarding the chartering of charter schools.

Mr. O’Connell wants to congratulate our AFL-CIO scholarship winners.

Mr. Monfredo wants to celebrate World Smile Day.

Miss Biancheria is suggesting we implement the Army of Saints curriculum and the Reach Out and Read program in WPS.

We’re being asked to approve a prior year payment of $55.20.

And we’re sending the School Committee section of the policy manual to Governance for our consideration.
