Board at an Impasse Over Empty Seat

Ann Arbor Public Schools Board of Education regular meeting (December 14, 2016): Forsythe Middle School, 1655 Newport Rd

The Ann Arbor Public Schools (AAPS) Board of Education (BOE) trustees will meet in executive session at 5:00 PM this evening, citing attorney/client privilege. Executive sessions are closed to the public.

The regular meeting, starting at 7:00 PM, will begin with the board vacancy applicant public statements. The six candidates will each have three minutes to address the question posed by the trustees at the interviews this past Friday: “Tell us why we should pick you to fill this vacancy.” Each candidate’s application is viewable on the district website.

Directly after the public statements, the deliberation and voting process will take place. Once a candidate receives four or more votes, that person will immediately be sworn in as a trustee, filling the seat left vacant by the resignation of Donna Lasinski.

The trustees will hear several informational reports: an update on the Court of Appeals – Ulysses Wong and Michigan Gun Owners v AAPS; the monthly financial monitoring report; the 2016/17 staffing report; and a preview of 2017/18 enhancements.

No first briefing items are on the agenda.

Second briefing items include: the Technology Refresh Bid Recommendation, the Allen Elementary Furniture Replacement Purchase Recommendation, and Allen Bid Recommendations: Additional Flooring and Paint.

The consent agenda will include the technology refresh bid, the Allen furniture replacement purchase, and the additional flooring and paint at Allen.

Board action is to be taken on a transportation contract amendment.
