The Toledo Board of Education will hold a special meeting on April 3, 2013 at 5 p.m. to discuss the first version of the Performance Audit of the District by Evergreen Solutions.
The meeting will be in the board room of the Thurgood Marshall Building, 420 E. Manhattan Blvd. The board room is on the second floor and just to your right when you come in the main (Manhattan side) entrance of the building.
It is my understanding that both an electronic version and a limited number of written versions should be available at that time, ensuring that all members of the public have access to this public document.
It is also my understanding that board members and staff will have an opportunity to question various aspects of the report, though only factual errors will be changed for the next version of the report.
Having this preliminary report available after three months of study is in keeping with the promise Evergreen made to take only three months to do a comprehensive performance audit of the district. I also understand that recommendations that are dependent upon contractual negotiations will be identified as such.
This is a terrific step that the BOE took and we should be there to not only see the recommendations but also to support them in implementing them.
Hope to see you there!!!!
