Every one of the Board Directors running for re-election claim to value community engagement. Their actions tell a different story.
Look at the Board Actions. There has not been a Board Action that had any community engagement since February 16. It is the rare Board action that has any community engagement done prior to the vote. The four Board members who were elected in 2007 are the four chairs of the Board Committees.
Director Martin-Morris chairs the Curriculum and Instruction Policy Committee
Director Maier chairs the Operations Committee
Director Carr chairs the Audit and Finance Committee
Director Sundquist, as Board President, chairs the Executive Committee
Each of them, in their roles on the board committees, routinely forwards actions to the full board for a vote despite the absence of any community engagement whatsoever.
Each of them routinely votes on board actions despite the absence of any community engagement whatsoever.
Each of them, disingenuously claims to care deeply about community engagement. Their care for it, however, does not extend to taking any action in support of it.
