Please join me for a live blog of all four board committee meetings, which begin at 5 p.m. today.
It's going to be a busy night. Among other things, the board is scheduled to decide tonight how to fill the at large vacancy -- appoint Lou Petrucci or Mary Ruth Kapsiak to it, then interview candidates for that person's district seat (open to people who live in a particular area of the city), or open the seat to interested candidates from across the city.
The board is also expected to discuss whether to extend the student registration deadline, which was Nov. 28. Many parents have complained they were not aware of the deadline, and that the district did not do enough to advertise it.
