Our principal insists on having meetings with the Board before our PTO meetings. During these meetings he shares information regarding funding, turning down items, etc. During our PTO meetings, he says his speech at the beginning of the meeting and then promptly leaves. None of the topics he discussed during the meeting with the Board are discussed.
I feel as though he is "approving" our agenda, and don't feel that he has the right to do so. I think the Board should not have to attend these obligatory meetings where discussions are had and not shared with the PTO body.
It feels altogether "back-room" and in the past these pre-meetings have resulted in "fixed" election attemps where "his candidate" is talked to before a meeting.
It doesn't feel right. Thoughts?
