Monday, Dec. 14: Work session at the ESC on 4148 Winnetka Avenue at 5:30 pm.  There is a planned discussion on northeast school buildings and use of current excess buildings.

    In preparation for Monday’s meeting, you may want to read my latest post.

    Supt Sicoli has some good points regarding delaying divestiture. Unfortunate that these were not resolved already.

    I just think RAS should stop insisting the Facility Plan is complete. Until it is actually complete…. This mis-statement is hard on their credibility. (ie we’re done, but… we aren’t done…)

    At least they cut operating expenses for this year by reducing the number of sites that needed to be staffed. I’ll definitely give them credit for that.

    I fixed my profile in WordPress, so hopefully now you can jump to my site by just selecting “give2attain” in the “give2attain says” text above the comment. This is the test…

    I was at last nights RAS – Facility Advisory Committee meeting. Gary went over his Dec. 7TH presentation for the committee. He probably will be changing the last page to show a 10% decrease in value rather than the 10% increase in value.

    I strongly encourage everyone that can attend these two meetings to show up. The RAS Board needs to near in person the communities opinions. If you can’t make the meetings then email or call each Board member and tell them your opinion on these matters. KEEP engaged.
