Pasco School Board postpones budget public hearing
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.
