Can anyone tell me why the Rankin County School District holds its board meetings at 7:30 in the morning?
Parents who work can't attend. Mothers who stay home but have small children can't attend. Teachers and school level administrators are doing their jobs of teaching and administrating, so they can't attend. Students are supposed to be in school learning, so they can't attend.
Or rather, they shouldn't. I've been to a few school board meetings, and at each one good students were recognized by the board, and that's a good thing. However, I found it ironic that these students had to miss instruction time in order to be recognized for being good students. Is that holding their best interests at heart?
I've never heard of another school district holding board meetings in the morning. Furthermore, I've never seen a RCSD school board meeting agenda that lists open public comments. Is that what they're trying to avoid? It makes one wonder: Is someone trying to shut taxpayers, students, teachers, and parents - the ones who are most invested - out?

Jim,thanks for the info you provide. Could you possibly provide info as to when The Rankin Co. Republican party holds their meetings and precinct delegate elections. Thanks

I think it's simple, Lynn and Ann do not want any participation from the community.

RCSD changed from night meetings several years ago at the request of a large number of parents who felt they could come early, see their children recognized and get to work!!
