Board Meeting: June 12th

The Yuma Union High School District #70 (YUHSD) Governing Board will convene a regularly scheduled Board Meeting on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 at 5:15 p.m. in the District Board Room at the northwest corner of 32nd Street and Avenue A. I make a point to attend as many board meetings as possible, and more often than not, there are no community members (parents or otherwise) in attendance. I highly recommend that you attend, even if just for a few minutes, as the proceedings are very instructive and sometimes downright interesting. I have found the board members to be genuinely concerned with the welfare of our students while at the same time watching out for all the taxpayers of the county. Perhaps the best illustration of this conscientious stewardship of taxpayer dollars is the Board Room itself (it’s in a trailer): there is certainly no extravagance here!

I’ve attached the agenda for the meeting here:
