The Pottsgrove School Board meeting of May 27 was significant for a number of reasons.
First, it began with an announcement by School Board President Justin Valentine addressing the May 15 editorial criticizing the board for the manner in which which it filled a vacancy in which he pledged to establish a policy for the replacement of board members.
Second, it took another look at a proposal which hangs in the budget balance, a proposal to provide new lap top computers to each Pottsgrove High School student and new iPads to all middle school students.
And third, because a number of folks following the live Tweeting by yours truly responded by not only sending direct messages to one board member that became part of the discussion, but also people responding to what was happening in the meeting.
The whole idea behind social media is that it is supposed to enable part of a broader discussion and last night, it fulfilled part of that promise.
