I’ve been a homeschooling parent for six whole months now, after pulling two of my three kids out of public school at the end of the 2018-19 school year. But my oldest, who successfully argued for completing his final two years at public school, is now on the COVID-19 hiatus along with his sisters
I was the only Board member to vote against moving forward with advertising a public hearing on an up to 4 percent Admissions Tax during Tuesday’s Board meeting.
