Two serious errors occur in the October 12 Minutes that have been prepared for Board approval on October 26. These Minutes can be viewed in the Agenda on the District's website in the Agenda for the next meeting. These errors should be bought up on October 26 before the Oct. 12th Minutes are approved.
General Comment: The way the Minutes have been prepared for a long time is wrong. The recording secretary alters the agenda as the meeting progresses by inserting notes during the meeting. This does not constitute an adequate or complete record of the meeting.
The chaos, disruption and rancor are not recorded. You'd think it never happened, if you only read the Minutes. The violation of Robert's Rules of Order is not recorded. If you look at the official record, it is sanitized. It's the "vanilla" version.
9.1 Approval: Bond Refunding Resolution
No mention is made of the original vote on the motion to add discussion of Board Policy BD, which PASSED. The vote was 4-3. The votes were tallied and posted on the projection screen, which constitutes the "announcement" of the result.
Then Holmes realized that she had made a mistake. She had voted FOR the motion. And then she asked the recording secretary (not the Board Secretary) to change her vote. Holmes was completely wrong to do so. Once the vote is announced, which it was, that IS the vote. If a voter wants her vote changed, it requires the unanimous vote of the board. Robert's Rules of Order §4:42.
A discussion of Policy BD should be on the agenda for October 26. It is not.
Integrity of the position of Board Chair would have resulted in inclusion of Policy BD for discussion on this agenda. Even though it was officially (improperly) voted down on October 12, the board chair and superintendent could have added it. They didn't.
