Please tell me they are discussing a lockout?!

I don't understand what a lockout is. How would that impact the teachers?
Jose Cuervo December 14, 2012 at 08:57 PM
lock·out noun the temporary closing of a business or the refusal by an employer to allow employees to come to work until they accept the employer's terms.

Editor's Note: I attempted to get further details from Supt. Ellen Correll because the action item is vague. Here was her response: "It is vague due to the fact that the board will be discussing in closed session several items. I am not at liberty to disclose them."

I would think they are meeting because one of the board members has been out of the country for a few weeks. They can revote on any issues that they have had for the past month or so like extending Correll's contract.

U N B E L I E V A B L E !!!!!!!!!!! The board calls a special emergency meeting open to the public and afterwards do not share the purpose! People of D46 ... Another fine example of the total disrespect and incompetence of your school board! These people are verrrrrry shady! They care only about their own personal agendas and nothing else!
