While the full Worcester School Committee doesn't have a regular meeting until May 6, the full Committee will be on for the family forum on Tuesday evening at 6:30. This is focused on the five day return of those students whose families have chosen it, which starts next week on May 3. If you have any questions, please submit them by Monday at 6 pm.
We also have three subcommittee meetings this week, all of which will report out next week:
- On Monday at 5:30, Teaching, Learning, and Student Supports meets for the second of their two meetings on the proposed sex ed curricula. There's also consideration of a few new courses on the agenda, but the first will be most of the focus, I believe.
- On Tuesday at 4, Governance meets for a few employee requests on donations of sick time, plus the dress code, plus another section of the student handbook,
plus our rules. Apparently, those are being held?
- On Thursday at 5, Finance and Operations is jointly meeting with the City Council's Education subcommittee for (as the agenda says) items "of mutual interest." The two things on the agenda are the reopening plan (at Council request) and the FY22 budget, though do note the backup on that is the February one based on the House 1 budget. The Worcester Public Schools budget comes to the Committee on May 14; it will be based on the budget the House passes this week.
