The newly elected school board members are getting their orientation lessons today.
Today's meeting with staff and some board members is designed to help the former candidates learn how to be new board members when they take office Dec. 1. Along the way, they'll learn about the do's and don'ts of their new positions.
One of the challenges the new board members will face over the next few months is pressure to back off their campaign positions. While some previous board members have done 180s after taking office, that might be less likely now that the newbies form a majority instead of being in the minority.
