- Approve the agenda as submitted
The meeting will be called to the order, beginning with the pledge of allegiance.
So that there is agreement between board members on the agenda, and the amount of time spent on the meeting, the board shall vote to approve an agenda for the meeting. To the best of its ability, it will follow that agenda, and allow for the chair to move the board through the agenda as specified.
Our Public Comment period is for members of the public to address the board. Each member of the public may sign up to comment at the meeting, and will be allotted two minutes. The board will listen, but may not directly respond to any comments. Our meetings are open to the public and public record. As such, if your comment is about a private matter, please contact the board via email, or speak to the board chair privately.

#1: Discovery Session Community Report
Ariana delivered the high level summary report at the May meeting. This is the draft of the full community wide report. It is dense - so please sit down with a cup of coffee and give it a read. The Communications committee has gone through its round of feedback and I wanted to makes sure you guys have a chance to give feedback.
Here are a few areas of feedback for you to consider:
Action: Review the report, send me your questions and be prepared to vote for the public release. (The Communications Committee has reviewed the report and given feedback.)
#2: FlyLight Creative Retainer Contract
I felt the need to transition Ariana Santiago - the communications consultant - from a project-based to a retainer-based relationship. There had been preliminary discussions about hiring a part-time grant writer/communications employee but these discussions discussions didn’t result in a budget allocation I had expected. The 2018-2019 budget allocation for communications is $10,000. Before I approach the Finance Committee with a request for a retainer, I wanted to field this request with the Governing Board.
Here are a few of my concerns about the project-based approach:
Action: Review the contract and email me your feedback about execution directly. Please do not email me questions about the budget. The budget discussion will occur with the Finance Committee. I’ll be presenting this retainer request to Virginia and the Finance Committee.
