Join me at 6 p.m. today for a live blog of the District Parent Coordinating Council meeting.
There's quite a bit on the agenda tonight.
For one thing, the group is holding its elections. Nominations can be taken from the floor, but at this point, Sam Radford is running for president uncontested. The only contested race, in fact, is for vice president: Jessica Bauer Walker and Bryon McIntyre are vying for the position. Only those parent reps in attendance at tonight's meeting can vote on the officers, I'm told.
Also, a representative from the governor's office will present an overview of the governor's education reform agenda -- a key piece of which links school aid increases in 2012-13 to implementation of the new teacher evaluation system in every district.
And parents will discuss the proposed changes to the suspension policy in Buffalo. (Here's today's story on teacher reactions to those changes.)
