PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE
•II. APPROVAL OF AGENDA
Ms. Ngissah wants to add an agenda item: Consultant bought in to faculty meeting and the QUEIA process conflict. She has many teachers approach her regarding this issue. Teachers want this to go to QEIA. The said consultant contract refers to cancellation of contract.
What budget did this come out of? This has been asked many times and no answer has been given. SSC needs to approve his expenditure.
