    Around here after you are offered the job the school board must approve your hire. I assume that's how it is most places. I'm going back and forth on whether I should go or not. I know that I won't say anything and it's basically a blip on the agenda for the school board members. They won't notice if I'm there or not, and it's pretty boring. On the other hand I am finally getting the job and this approval is the final step. How many of you went or are going to the school board meeting where you are recommended for hire?

    That's not part of the process where I'm at, as far as I know.

    I guess I would probably want to go and show myself, just to be on the safe side. It's just one night.

    It is part of the proces here. Last year when I got hired the board meeting that they approved us at was right in the middle of NTO. I was dead dog tired and didnt go.

    I have to be in new teachers (new to district) inservice that day anyway, so I may as well just stay down there and work on my room until board time. I don't think I have to or anything.

    We have the same process here. Teacher offered job; teacher accepts offer; school board approves teacher. I didn't go to the meeting and I don't know of any other new hires that went either, although, it is fine if you do.

    In all districts I've taught in it is standard procedure. However, it is just a formality. The school board just gives a blanket approval as they don't know you or any other new hires. I personally have never gone and never heard of anyone going. I wouldn't worry about going if I were you.

    Okay thanks,
    I really didn't want to go, but I wanted to know what you guys thought first.

    It's that way around here too but we are not required to go to the meeting.
