AJC reporter Jaime Sarrio will be reporting in real time tonight via Twitter from the Atlanta Public School board meeting. The board will consider a proposal to close 10 schools and move the boundaries at dozens of others. The goal is to balance enrollment in the 50,000-student district and make better use of district dollars. (Here is a primer on the issues at hand.)
Jaime will be live tweeting from 6 until 8 p.m. from the meeting. You can follow her at https://twitter.com/#!/ajcschoolsK12
(Don’t be afraid of Twitter — You don’t have to be a member of Twitter or Tweet to follow along. All you have to do is follow the link like a regular website. She will be updating in blurbs as the meeting unfolds. It’s basically like reading her notes from the meeting in real time. )
The AJC also will be updating the story on ajc.com as it unfolds, and there will be extensive coverage in print editions tomorrow. Maureen Downey will be covering the vote from her Get Schooled blog as well.
