During the April 25th, special called school board meeting the focus was on bus contracts and the school system budget for the 2020 Fiscal Year. The first part of the meeting was a special called school board meeting, while the second part was a budget work session.
You can watch the budget work session here or follow along with the agenda for the special called session here. Both sections of the meeting were rather short and made for a good and entertaining school board meeting.

Budget Work Session
The budget work session started off with a rather intense video showcasing the growth and excellence of Hamilton County Schools. Then, the meeting got intense with flashes of dialogue about encouraging growth to talk about some discouraging statistics.
The overall gist of all of the numbers was that we are doing great, but we have a long way to go in order to reach our goals.
This meeting was primarily focused on the money side of Hamilton County Schools, which made the students seem like the subplot in their own play. As a whole, this school board meeting was interesting and gave really good insight into how our school board functions.
