12:55 am
percentage within that population and what is the number of students that have been identified for example, through special education that science thing i don't know if you have that kind of data or staff that will be important affairs for us to know a smaller group they get lumgdz into the other goes up so if you have any insight yourselves about whether that 200 and 16 number actually accurately captures the number of office of complaints or awe latin students in the district or think that is too small a number do you have any insight into that? >> good evening board hi program coordinator for the

1:26 am
allow the rules committee to get into the agenda the green the change that was we had a discussion about the president to recognize one that the law required r internal revenue service that people not have to identify themselves only for the record and second that some topics are not necessarily clear enough to be reflected the minutes people just want to talk about something therefore the rules committee put the amendments you'll see here this is just this part will read the minutes shall reflect the names of people that identify themselves and the topics addresses as prototype that's the committee recommendation
