At the same meeting, LaChandra Butler Burks and Cecily Harsch-Kinnane were named to second two-year terms as chair and vice chair, respectively. The Board Work Session followed, with the topic, “School Administrative Manager’s Program.” The Committee of the Whole meeting followed, with Board Officers scheduled to be elected. The Board’s Community Meeting and Legislative Session followed. Among the special guests scheduled to attend the board meeting was a group of visiting educators from Harvard University’s Urban Superintendents Program and the Harvard University Graduate School of Education, who will be here for several days next week to review the district’s school reform initiatives with Superintendent Dr. Beverly L. Hall.
