Letter from Doug Husen, IIA Board Chairman

Dear Board Members and Parents,
 
Thanksgiving’s short week threw off our normal schedule.  It’s come to my attention that we posted on our website the Agenda for our meeting scheduled tonight, 48 hours prior, but not 72 hours as would be required for us to take any board actions.
 
None of the board actions on the agenda are time dependent.  All decisions and discussions can wait till our next meeting in two weeks- Tuesday, December 14th 6PM.
 
My apology for the inconvenience.  We want to fulfill the full intent and letter of the Brown Act provisions.  Thanks for understanding,
 
 
Doug
 
p.s.  That means, you have your evening back!  Good time to do Christmas shopping or decorating a tree.

Top Schools of China Presentation

Dr. Scott presented the One-to-One Classroom™ to students at Xi’an Yi Lin School with Principal Luo Hu (family name goes first, then given name second). The student’s engagement response was tremendous and the principals from the 5 other associated schools are looking toward our return. Principal Luo’s school was chosen as a select, model program that China will be looking to find the top teachers of China.
