Mr. Collette, you might recall, is one of the masterminds behind the Promethean Board project.
Conference documents show that Mr. Collette did two presentations at the ITIE Symposium, sponsored by Promethean, on October 6, 2008.
But documents obtained by the Parents' Coalition reveal that MCPS actually paid $1,422 for a five day, four night stay ($355 per night) at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel in London so that Mr. Collette could attend the two day conference and present on one day. Airfare to London was another $947, also paid by MCPS.
Cost to taxpayers: $2,368.84
Plus meals and other incidentals that cost an undisclosed amount.
