Why I walked out at 6:30PM?
I got fed up several times during the meeting, which started at 5:30PM, when the superintendent took a deep breath and then talked and talked and talked. And Chairman Manning let him. And no board member called a "Point of Order".
Davis had already apologized on Tuesday night for the District's error in putting out a message that meals would be thrown away. Why did he go on and on and on about it again. The trustees had already heard it.
But what really got me was the discussion about a Meal Debt Account set up by the Richland Two Educational Foundation. A question came up whether a person or business making a donation could designate his donation to apply to the account of a particular school
For example, could graduates of Spring Valley High School donate to reduce or clear the meal account debt of Spring Valley students?
When Supt. Davis said they could not because that would not be "equity", I stood up and walk out in disgust!
He said a donation would have to applied to the total meal debt account of the District. He didn't ask the trustees what they thought.
I am not the only one in the District who is sick and tired of hearing about "equity".
