Budgets, Graduation and Cyber Schools

This time, the all-committee-meetings-all-the-time format did not lead to an endless meeting.

Tuesday's Pottsgrove School Board meeting only lasted about two hours, which is about average.

During that meeting we learned about recommendations for new graduation requirements for the Class of 2016. Those recommendations include the elimination of the "graduation project" requirement.

We were also introduced to a new "budget Bible" that we could admire from distance, but not read to better understand the budget. And the board was encouraged at least ask the administration to put together a preliminary budget with tax increase at all, just to see what it would look like.

 And we talked about digital learning, cyber classes, digital books written by Pottsgrove teachers and even the potential for selling that on-line content to others.

You can learn it all by reading the comprehensive and incisive Tweets from the meeting, as presented by our live Tweeting team.... ahem....
