Hillsborough board will discuss visitors on Friday



At a workshop Friday afternoon, the Hillsborough County School Board will discuss visitors to the schools. The agenda includes how to screen tutors, chaperones and other guests.

Although the agenda does not mention the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the board scheduled the workshop after complaints about a CAIR speaker at a high school.

The meeting is 2 to 5 p.m. at district headquarters, 901 E. Kennedy Blvd. It is open to the public, but no public comment is allowed and no vote will be taken.

A workshop also is scheduled Tuesday morning to discuss pay-for-play in school athletics.
