I have a hunch we're getting close(ish) to the board coming back because APS staff members have been slowly trickling into the public meeting chambers. But, I don't have any special insight.

So far Nancy Meister is alone on the dais. Meister, who represents north Atlanta on the school board, supports the renewal of Carstarphen's contract. She said in an email last week to the board chair that she had concerns about the decision making process.

Board WILL NOT extend Carstarphen's contract. Jason Esteves says a majority of board does not support an extension.

But there's still a LOT of unanswered questions: Like a detailed and full 'why' from all the board members who didn't support her contract renewal as well as the "why now" question. I'll be working on getting more answers this week. And if you have any insight, please share it.

Was there rationale for why there is not majority support?
