The Prince William County School Board will consider a proposal to allow schools to opt-out of the Math Investigations curriculum this evening. Tonight’s meeting will be at Edward L. Kelly Leadership Center, located at 14715 Bristow Rd., Manassas, VA 20112 (directions here) at 7:00 PM rather than the school board meeting room in Independent Hill. The school board still requires you to either notify the clerk by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org by noon today, or you can sign up on the list at the entrance to the meeting before 7:00 PM.
If you think you’re going to attend, I would suggest e-mailing the clerk right now just in case you might want to speak, whether you actually intend to do so or not. You gotta get that pre-clearance approval to address your elected officials, otherwise you pesky citizens have to sit quietly and keep your mouths shut like the good little subjects you’re supposed to be.
UPDATE: I’ve heard that the speaker sign-up sheet is being picked up at 6:30, rather than at 7:00 as documented on the PWCPS website. If you haven’t emailed the clerk and obtained your pre-approval you need to show up at least a half hour before the meeting starts if you care to share your views with the board.
