Schools and Education Manatee School Board Meeting Agenda Results: 10/22/2012

Posted

BRADENTON – During Monday's meeting, the board approved a motion to apply for a new Race to the Top competition that will run from December 2012 through the end of 2016. David Gayler's first offical meeting as Interim Superintendent became heated when Linda Schaich critiqued his "detractor" comment from last week, saying that people working for the school district "have been bullied into silence by fear of retribution." Schaich also expressed more disdain about the audit to be conducted on the mishandled budget, and expressed hope that a newly elected board member would help call for a more thorough one after the election.
