Joint Finance and Operations/ Education subcommitte TONIGHT!

with apologies for the late update...I've been out of commission for a few days

There is a joint meeting of the City Council Education committee and the School Committee Finance and Operations subcommittee. We're meeting tonight at 5:30 pm at City Hall.

You can find the agenda here, though the agenda itself doesn't tell you much more than that we're meeting. The real information is in the backups.
There is a facilities update, including the great news on both Nelson Place and South High from last week, and including administration's recommendations for accelerated repair projects, which are:
  • Flagg (windows)
  • McGrath (windows)
  • Grafton Street (windows, boiler)
  • Jacob Hiatt (windows)
The F&O subcommittee votes these, then the full School Committee, then the full Council, before they are submitted to MSBA. The Statement of Interests are due by April 10 this year. 

We also have the transportation information, much of which you know already if you have been following this. What's new is the School Bus Consultants report, which comes with an attached memo from administration regarding their findings. 

While we don't have a written update on budget, I wouldn't be surprised if Mr. Foley asks for one at the meeting.
