    Oops on the timeline above –

    The Thurs. 8 Dec email did have a version of the MOU in it! The email had the subject “Exhibit A” , and it was a forward of a blank email with the same subject sent out on Wed 7 Dec.

    Well, I guess that demolishes my theory on insider clique-ism!

    There were 4 or 5 days to read the MOU before the attempt to shove it down our throats on Mon. the 12th!

    From the other Seattle schools blog – a comment about Jonathan’s style of ‘democratic’ involvement for Seattle Education Association members.

    Follow the timeline for the Creative Approach Schools MOU, one of the latest Jonathan efforts:

    announced for a Monday 12 Dec vote, even though there was NOT a published draft to vote on, on Thursday 8 Dec.

    tabled for 1 month on 12 Dec. to Mon. 9 Jan. due to SEA RA concerns about the fast timeline, and the lack of an actual document… to read.

    postponed by Snow-mageddon until Mon. 24 Jan.

    actually released for review on Tues. 10 Jan.

    passed by a pack the house vote on 24 Jan.

    possibly changed AND not reviewed AND not voted on again, but, approved by the school board on Wed. 15 Feb.

    The latest MOU, supported by City Council member Tim Burgess, a frequent flyer at the dog and pony shows put on by Gates’ Astro Turfs of LEV & SFC & AFE …was hashed out

    behind the scenes !!

    Secret Voting Isn’t Voting For Secrecy.”
