Roundtable

Rob Cohen did not approve cyber charter school payments in an effort to recognize the unfair mandate that requires public schools to pay large tuition fees for students who choose to attend cyber charters which are low performing. Lisa Roth said that she met with Representative Mike Schlossberg with Rich Sniscak and Jim Moniz and Marie Maritch this week to lobby for regulation of the mandated tuition payments. They will continue to schedule meetings with more legislators to educate them on the issue.


LCCC will host an active shooter drill on August 23rd.


The Parkland Library has many programs for adults and youth - visit their website to register for events.


Rich Sniscak thanked Kelly Rosario and the Administrators for an excellent summer professional development retreat last week.

Next Meeting is Tuesday, August 20, 2019, at 7 PM (Workshop) and 8 PM (Meeting)
