Berthiaume & Brandman absent from budget vote

At the February 17, 2010, Board of Education meeting the major agenda item was a vote on the FY11 Operating Budget.

Absent from the Board table for this important vote were Board members Laura Berthiaume and Shirley Brandman.

Board members Berthiaume and Brandman missed a lengthy discussion about movement of pre-school students from the MPAC program to an as yet undeveloped MCPS program. The MCPS program was started prior to the Board of Education vote yesterday.

While news reports have said the MCPS FY11 Operating Budget passed unanimously, that statement only refers to those Board members present at the Board table for the vote.

This Board meeting was rescheduled from a previous date that was canceled because of snow.
