A board member requested the board revisit the grandfathering decision from the April 19 boundary adjustment workshop. CSISD board operating procedures allow for a board member to request an agenda item.
In lieu of waiting until the regularly-scheduled board meeting on Tuesday, May 15, the board will meet this Friday ahead of activities scheduled at the high schools for the 8th graders impacted by boundary adjustment.
Statement from CSISD Board President Jeff Harris regarding the special workshop:
“Even though the Board of Trustees made final decisions concerning the boundary adjustment process on April 19, there has been a formal request to have the matters placed on a future Board agenda so that the Board can revisit its decisions. Due to the importance and timing of upcoming events designed to assist students affected by the boundary changes, it is important for the Board to make its intentions on these matters clear as soon as possible. We want to limit uncertainty and confusion so that our students and their families can make the best possible decisions moving forward. Accordingly, I have called a special meeting of the Board for this Friday at noon, instead of waiting until our regularly-scheduled meeting on May 15.”
