Parents, teachers, “In God We Trust” and school boundaries.

Very briefly.

There was a very long public notice published in the print edition of The Palm Beach Post on Wednesday, February 27th about upcoming public meetings by the Palm Beach County School Board.

How long was this public notice? It starts in the lower right column of p. B8 and ends on the second column on p. B9. Many items will be up for public discussion.

There is no reason to be upset. There will be plenty of time for public comment and public input.

Briefly. Here are just two of the topics:

NEW RULE NUMBER: 7.28 SUBJECT: Display of “In God We Trust" in each School District-operated facility. . .

And another topic is proposed new school boundaries affecting these elementary schools: Highland, Palm Springs, Barton, South Grade, Pine Jog and Melaleuca; and high schools Palm Beach Central and John I. Leonard.
