Portland Public Schools District-wide Boundary Review Advisory Committee met for the first time on the evening of 11/12/14. The agenda included committee member introductions, a welcome from Superintendent Smith, and introductory orientations.
I was able to take photos (unlike at SACET meetings).
"Public Comment" was an agenda item. I was able to make a one minute comment. I urged the committee to increase its public interaction by making email contact with committee members by the public possible and by creating a system for the public to submit documents (by email or hard copy) into the public record where they could be viewed online by the committee and other members of the public. I cited the OEIB, the Oregon Board of Education, and Oregon legislative committees as having such systems.
