51. Board Member Reports

Ms. Campbell made note of a change she recently learned while attending the FSBA conference regarding the Board's annual filing of the Statement of Financial Interest form, which will be done electronic this year.

Mr. Susin referenced that lower income families are forced to purchase a ticket online if they are interested in watching state championship games.  In previous years, an audio version was provided or a school was able to pay $500 in order to provide streaming.  This year, the National Sports Association has decided to go through Spectrum Sports which does not allow schools to pay the $500 for streaming and the audio piece was denied.  So now there is no coverage unless through their system.  Mr. Susin would like the Board to start looking at different options.

 

52. Discussion - Melbourne High School Renaming [Policy Changes and MHS Renaming Application] - Susin

Mr. Susin discussed the renaming of Melbourne High School.  He explained that our policy is very limited and vague, which allowed the renaming process to go on for three seperate times.  He stated that they have had meetings and the public has come out.  He provided percentages of support for the renaming, with the overwhelming majority against.  He stated that he understands the request and honors what Ms. Lopez is doing and the level of support should not take away from the need.  He explained that he has had discussion with Ms. Lopez reqarding an opporutnity with the new elementary school that may be built in the South, which may be an appropriate way to file and name a school after Joseph Acaba.

Mr. Susin stated that he fully supports naming schools after someone from within the community.  He stated that Joseph Acaba will be going back into space, around the same time the new elementary school will be built, which could be an amazing opportunity. 

Mr. Susin brought this topic up to see if the Board wanted to give staff direction to relook at the policy and processes.  In addition, to see if the Board wanted to give a recommendation today over the renaming of Melbourne High School to identify the Board's support.

Ms. Belford asked if Board members opposed allowing staff to bring the policy back on a future date.  There was no opposition.  Ms. Campbell asked that staff take a look at what other districts are doing.  Dr, Mullins stated that he will work with the Legal Office and staff to work towards bring back a revised policy.

Ms. Belford stated that voting against the renaming of the school tonight would go against the policy.
