August 24, 2020

In a wide-ranging and very long meeting tonight the School Board of the District of the Menomonie area took many actions relating to the opening of schools, and held the Annual Meeting. The evening's agenda was to hold the School Board meeting before the school's annual meeting, but the board meeting was much too long to fit into the allotted one-hour slot, so it was continued after the Annual Meeting.

Covering the Menomonie School Board has from the start been emotionally trying. I'm the guy who is almost always at the school board meeting, first doing video recordings and recently doing live streams. Through the past 2 years give or take I've seen a lot of dysfunctional behavior on the board, and a number of incidents that have left me shaking my head. The board regularly exhibits passive-aggressive behavior that at times borders on toxic.

One of the topics of conversation in this week's Menomonie School Board meeting was making the board's activities more transparent.
