Setting the Stage for Part II

Folks are gathering for the meeting and the crowd is a little smaller than yesterday, though the room is still pretty full. But there seems to be even more media here today.
Right now, all seven board members are already on the dais. I haven't seen Superintendent Joseph Wise or Chief of Staff David Sundstrom and doesn't look like they will take their seats.
The board members look pretty relaxed. Everyone was smiling before the meeting.
Karen Chastain and Cindy Laquidara from the General Counsel's Office have just taken their seats. They represented the School Board in ironing out the settlement agreement with Wise.
Just in case someone needs catching up, the School Board voted to fire Wise yesterday. The settlement agreement could give him compensation between $70,000 and $600,000, depending on where the board's lawyers and the district's lawyers come to agreement.
Chairwoman Vicki Drake just started the meeting and Laquidara has begun speaking. Keep tuned in.
