Inaugural Consent Order Reports
Filed November 15, 2015
Defendant, Huntsville Board of Education (the “Board”), files this day its first, annual Consent Order Report with the Court. The Board has filed this notice to help the Court, and the citizens of Huntsville, better understand the many documents that compose this inaugural Consent Order Report. This notice provides context and explains notable features of nearly every document in the Consent Order Report.
The Consent Order Report and this notice provide the Court baseline data necessary to benchmark the Board’s implementation of the Consent Order as it is reported in future Consent Order Reports. Where possible, this notice also highlights the steps the Board has taken to begin implementing the Consent Order in the 2015-2016 school year. It is the Board’s hope that this filing will provide the Court and the Huntsville community an update of the Board’s implementation progress.
The inaugural Consent Order Report is extensive and consists of numerous, complicated documents. To create this Report, the Board’s employees undertook a herculean effort to collect the necessary information and to compile the information into a reportable format. These employees performed this daunting task while simultaneously working to implement the Consent Order. Although there is still work to be done, it is difficult to overstate the Board’s commitment to a faithful and successful implementation of the Consent Order.
