From Mary Byrne:
Below is an excerpt of an e-mail I received today from the office of Sharon Helwig at DESE. Please note the information regarding public hearings that must be held by the State Board of Education.
If it is at all possible, please attend and plan to provide your observations to the state board at the October 27thmeeting. This is your opportunity to be heard!
HB 1490 also requires that the State Board conduct a public hearing after meetings have been initiated. That hearing is scheduled for Monday, October 27, at 11:00 a.m. in the State Board Room, located in the Jefferson State Office Building, 205 Jefferson Street, Jefferson City, MO 65101. If a group would like to provide written materials for the board prior to the hearing, it must identify and submit materials to be printed and assembled by end of day Wednesday, October 22nd. Procedures for that hearing before the State Board of Education will be posted on the Department website prior to October 27.
