Group Wants Public’s Opinion Of Lafayette School Board
LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — One education advocacy group is asking for the public's feedback on how the Lafayette Parish School Board conducts itself and its business during its board meetings.
Stephen Bartley, chairman of the Lafayette Parish Public Education Stakeholders Council, says his group has created an online feedback form as part of the group's Project Involve initiative to gauge public opinion about school board governance.
The form asks meeting attendees or viewers to rate the board based on their own observations, like whether board members were prepared for the meeting or whether they used district data or other research when making statements or decisions.
The Advocate reports the form is available on the group's website in time for the school board's first regular board meeting Wednesday.
