WriterCoach Connection Described for WCCUSD Board

The latest addition to my video archive of general public comments consists of just one comment, but it’s a good comment. Robert Menzimer, Executive Director of Community Alliance for Learning, describes the genesis of WriterCoach Connection, providing one-on-one volunteer tutoring in writing to secondary school students, and how it’s been extending into the West Contra Costa Unified School District. (Although he doesn’t mention Todd Groves, he’s been instrumental in this extension.) Sadly, he only had two minutes even though there were only 4 speakers listed.

Anyway, listen to the video for a capsule summary and check out the program.

Public Comment Clips for WCCUSD BOE Meetings


Every West Contra Costa USD Board of Education meeting includes a segment for general public comment on non-agenda items. In the meetings I have attended, this can be an interesting direct insight into what people are thinking about. There are two problems with this:

  1. The minutes only show the names of speakers, not what they said.
  2. The speakers are called in order, not by what they are speaking about, so it can be hard to follow a single topic when listening.

As a solution to (1), I’ve started a project to clip out these public comment segments from WCCUSD board meeting archives and post to my YouTube channel. I’ve started working my way back and will continue to add to a playlist I’ve set up that contains all of these clips.
