Worcester School Committee meets Thursday

The Worcester School Committee meets tomorrow night at 7 pm. You can find the agenda here.
We are honoring both Harvard Pilgrim Health Care (for their work this year at Chandler Elementary) and South High (for their wellness award).
The report of the superintendent is a report back from the Blue Ribbon Panel on technology. If you have an interest in technology in education, please take a look and tell me what you think!
Reports are coming back from:

We have a few appointments coming through.
We are opening negotiations with our secretaries.
Mr. O'Connell has filed an item to consider civics mastery, including possibly having students take the U.S. Naturalization test.
We are being asked to receive a donation for McGrath School from Unibank for leveled readers.
We are being asked to receive donations on behalf of Claremont Academy for their trip to Spain this year.
We are being asked to receive a grant for family literacy for $5000. 
We are being asked to receive a grant from the Boston Foundation in Architecture for $1920 for an after school club at Worcester Arts Magnet School. 
We are forwarding letters to our distinguished alumni. 
I'm asking that we have regular meetings of the Standing Committee on Finance and Operations with the City Council's Education subcommittee (anyone wonder why?)
We're congratulating the Burncoat quadrant on the "Burncoat to Broadway" concert.
Miss Biancheria and I are requesting that we review the school accountability plans (in the Accountability subcommittee).
We are being asked to approve spending for FY12 in the amount of $20,383.21

7pm, tomorrow night at City Hall!
