by Karel Kilimnik

Co-chairs Leticia Egea-Hinton and Lee Huang were present along with Committee members Wayne Walker and Joyce Wilkerson. Board member Chris McGinley attended; Board member Angela McIver left early and Julia Danzy came in after the meeting started. Two APPS members attended this meeting and spoke in defense of public education. City Director of Finance Rob Dubow attended part of the meeting as well. The Committee approved Minutes of its  December 6 2018 meeting. Egea-Hinton announced a schedule change for this Committee’s meetings due to objections from the community about its 10 AM start time. February, April, and June meetings are scheduled for 4 PM, just after school hours. They expressed hope that this will encourage more parent participation. Two staff presentations followed: Understanding the Budget Process by Chief Financial Officer Uri Monson and Chief Operating Officer Danielle Floyd’s updates on Facilities Renovations and Remediations. (The Agenda, Power-Point presentations, and Minutes are available on the Board website under Meeting Materials.)
