Ms. Patterson referenced 1001.42 which was not an agenda item, but authority for action on some agenda items. She was told she could have time to speak with non-agenda items.)
Sara Mirsky - Ms. Mirsky only listed F on Construction. She addressed several items and indicated her approval for the repair issues at Endeavour. She began to speak about inappropriate books in the school. At that time Chair Belford said she could address that non-agenda item during the non-agenda public comments. Ms. Mirsky then spoke briefly about public participation.
