Hillsborough launches new panel on early-release controversy
TAMPA -- It's not every district subcommittee that gets its own web page.
But that's what Hillsborough's new Early Release Committee has. The new panel -- which includes parents, teachers, administrators, and union leaders -- is holding its first meeting today.
On its site you'll find names of those representatives, a list of meeting dates, and an overview of the controversial issues (the ever-changing calendar, the parent complaints, the floating last day of school) that got us to this point. The group is co-chaired by deputy superintendent Ken Otero and Melissa Erickson, president of the PTA/PTSA county council.
Any predictions on what all of this activity will bring?
