Two parents spoke in favor of a 7 period day at the meeting.
They stressed the value of arts in education.

There was no dialog about the 7th period day issue. It wasn't on the agenda. The only item on the agenda was the acceptance of the report by a consultant, on the 7th period day, and the conclusions that she had drawn. The one or two comments made about art and music during public comment period are the same ones that have been used to support the idea of more electives in a school day, all along. It has been clear all along that this would become a parcel tax issue. Too bad they didn't just come out and say it from the outset. Now, I think that even a minimal parcel tax will be difficult in this district.
