The major official event during the meeting I can mark at this distance was the two no votes for a package of pay raises for various administrative types (details on those raises here: the largest by far was for Nicklow's promotion to provost). The Southern notes that this move was roundly supported by the union members in attendance. This *could* be an important sign that two BOT members, Don Lowery and Donna Manering, aren't in lock-step with the administration's hard line toward unions. Manering taught elementary school, was a school principal, and was active in the IEA. Lowery, who seems to have led the opposition to this move, is a retired circuit judge, so is used to making up his own mind. (Bios of the BOT are available here.)
The 40 people who appeared in black with their signs must have made a big impact on the board and administrators. Here's a neat photo I've stolen from the Southern.
