10:10 Joe Trapp speaks on 10/26/21

10:28 Agostini questions Holmes’ vote in favor of a motion. Holmes unilaterally changed her vote, improperly per Robert’s Rules of Order. Holmes said she had a right to change her mind. NO, not after the vote was announced. RONR provides the way to do, which Holmes did not follow.

11:05 Several speakers on 10/26/21 criticize the board to task for so much adverse news in media, for CRT indoctrination, sexualization of children.

16:12 Philpott addresses board on 1/11/22. Holmes improperly corrected Philpott about attempting to say that Trustee McFadden had correctly (done something). Holmes was wrong AT MANY MEETINGS about the speaking of names. Board Policy does not prohibit mentioning names.

18:00 Mary Livermore speaks to board.

18:39 Larry Smalls speaks to board. Manning cuts him off at end of time and cuts off microphone.

19:23 Student Ethan Lopez addresses board on 3/8/22 about being cussed out by Mrs. Davis on 1/25/22. Holmes cautions him after he says “district leader’s wife” and tells Lopez “no names”.

22:00 Ethan Lopez addresses board on 3/8/22 about Pamela Davis’ comments to him on 1/25/22. Say District pushed it (the 1/25/22 incident) under the rug. He had watched a cop and school board (member) restrain him (Supt. Davis).

22:50 TV reporter says Mrs. Davis said she didn’t do anything inappropriate on 1/25/22. [Shouting “I KNOW WHO YOU ARE. DON’T TALK TO ME! GET AWAY FROM ME!” at a man who was politely introducing himself is “not doing anything inappropriate”?]

23:15 More by Ethan Lopez on 2/8/22.

23.38 David Gayle addresses the board on 2/8/22.

23:48 Conclusion of Craig Conwell’s (Khanwell) vicious, racist, threatening remarks at the 2/8/22 board meeting. No challenge at all from Holmes or Davis. Had a white man spoken that way at the meeting, he would have been carried out!!!

24:12 President Bush. Hard work.

24:35 Caution-Parker complains about the “git-cha” [sic] (Most people call it a “gotcha”). Trustee McFadden commits the unpardonable sin of addressing Caution-Parker as “Ms. Parker”. Caution-Parker responds nastily and disrespectfully with “It’s Dr. Parker. Doctor Parker. DOCTOR. CHERYL. CAUTION. PARKER !!!”

24:57 Holmes. “Stay woke”

25:06 Audio recording of 4/28/22 executive session, recorded in violation of Board Policy by (I have the name but have not been able to confirm it with him.) Holmes is clearly baiting and patronizing Trustee McFadden.

29:10 Caution-Parker speaks on 10/11/22 against Cash Advances to board members for travel. Scott brings up unnecessary car rentals, referring to Holmes’ $807.30 car rental and parking at the April NASB conference in San Diego. Caution-Parker doesn’t understand Advances. Manning makes irrelevant comment about per-diem. Agostini asked who approves expenses after travel. Agostini had the floor, but Manning continued to interrupt and argue with her.

34:00 Manning made a completely irrelevant, improper and racially-oriented comment about what he thought was a different standard for travel permissions between previous white superintendents and Supt. Davis, who is black. Manning said that was a statement of fact. Trustee Scott objected strong to his statement. Caution-Parker chimed in with support for Manning’s statement.

35:00 Holmes: “You need to Stay Woke”
