Board Chair Ann Kent, fellow board members and Superintendent Dr. Wayne Talley, why didn’t you use the Robo Call to announce the formal meeting you called for yesterday Monday, July 18, 2011?
So what is the purpose of having a system if you are not going to use it?
I can’t get over the meeting being posted with the time, date and place but no purpose, hell I could have understood it better if the time, date and/or place had been left off but the purpose.
Also there should be something on your site that one should be able to receive an email in real time everytime something like this is posted.
But the Robo Call goes to all the homes on your list which consist of not only parents, but business/community leaders and anyone whom have asked to be on the list and what is good about that is if no one answers you can leave a message.
The Daily Southerner Newspaper does not operate on Saturday and Sunday so that can not be used to get the message to the people. The Rocky Mount Telegram can be used however I don’t feel that it should be used alone. However I don’t recall seeing anything it that paper.
Again as I have stated in previous mailings about this issue, you and your fellow board members and Superintendent Dr. Wayne Talley know that I am very much interested in personnel issues. I asked this board several years ago that for those whom attend the meetings a list of personnel transfers, retirees, resignations and etc. be made available after you come out of closed session at every board meeting. You honored my request back then. However just recently the list is not available on the night of your meeting but is made available on the next day via your website. I have no problem with that.
Board chair Ann Kent, fellow board members and Superintendent Dr. Wayne Talley you ask parents, children and others to follow your policies and procedures so I continue to challenge you to follow your own policies and procedures. It is evident you all would have met and acted upon this matter if I had not inquired about this meeting. But don’t twist it because I am not about trying to get credit for anything because you know I do what I do and has been doing what I do since the early 90’s challenging this board and the Edgecombe County Public Schools System.
Board chair Ann Kent, fellow board members and Superintendent Dr. Wayne Talley, I am requesting that you use the Robo Call system to contact the people of Edgecombe County to make them aware of future board meetings be it regular, special and formal meetings. Maybe I am asking too much but I have heard you say you wanted parental and community involvement.
I thank each of you for serving our Edgecombe County Public Schools System however don’t forget the main thing. You serve at the pleasure of the children, parents, community/business leaders and all other interested persons especially those whom participate in the voting process, but not limited to.
As I close, always remember, “I have no permanent friends, no permanent enemies only permanent interest.”
