There was standing room only at tonight's board meeting. Parents and students were at the meeting in support of what was reported as a fired wresting coach. An unnamed female student said he was fired for reprimanding a student. Several spoke in support of the coach, stating that he was a coach who, "straightened out students who needed it", and "he worked hard to ensure students become decent citizens".
Those who spoke were allowed to speak because of a new policy adopted recently by the Board that allows participants 2 minutes to address the board on a non-agenda item. The Board cannot respond but listens to the concerns of citizens.
