Missed November Curriculum Meeting

I missed the Newburgh School District Curriculum Committee meeting today because of an unannounced change in the meeting time.

These are public meetings about public matters. The very least that the Board of Education should do is make sure that the schedule of when and where the meetings will occur is made available to the public before the meetings occur. And they do not do that.
