Pasco School Board members held a meeting a week ago. They have postponed Tuesday's session because of Hurricane Irma.

12

September

All things being normal, the Pasco County School Board would have conducted a workshop on Ridgewood High School and a public budget hearing this afternoon.

Then along came Hurricane Irma.

The storm has passed. But in its wake are left families without homes and others without power, schools needing cleanup after sheltering thousands, and a host of other critical concerns.

It wouldn't be right, superintendent Kurt Browning said, to conduct the school district's official business, where people should have the ability to participate if they wish, when residents are consumed with more basic needs.

So after consulting with board members, Browning canceled Tuesday's workshop and meeting. Actually, he said, "We're postponing it," stressing that the issues will come before the board at a future date.

Just not today.
