Pottsgrove Confronts Conference Costs

being recognized.
A couple of new things at last night's Pottsgrove School Board meeting.

First of all, I tried some live streaming video of various announcements.

Few took advantage but it's not like I gave a lot of warning. Look for more on my Twitter feed.

Also new was the first conference attendance denied in at least five years.

What made it all the more surprising is that the person denied taxpayer funding was the much-beloved Pottsgrove High School Principal Bill Ziegler.

The discussion about the manner in which conferences are approved, and the benefit of them, and how that benefit is passed on to staff and students, was a bit muddled.

But don't worry, we'll sort it all out in a Mercury article to be published shortly.

In the meantime, enjoy the Tweets in their raw form as they happened at last night's meeting.
