MCS, SCS to present action items at tonight's working meeting of Shelby unified school board

The unified countywide school board holds a working meeting tonight at 5:30 p.m. at the Memphis City Schools Teaching and Learning Academy at 2485 Union Avenue.  This is tonight's agenda. The 23-member board, which elected Orgel at an organizational meeting last week, will hold its first full business meeting next Tuesday -- same time, same place.

Tonight's meeting begins with the suburban Shelby County Schools system presenting its items for consideration, with Memphis City Schools to follow. The two systems will remain separate for the next two school years -- merger is to be complete in time for the 2013-14 school year. Until merger is complete, the systems will present take turns at meetings presenting their full agendas in total, rather than one item from one system, one from the other system, etc. 

By the way, you will notice that the Shelby County Schools website now features documents with a a kind of unified logo combining the SCS and Memphis City Schools logos.
