A lengthy discussion ensued with Board members giving their opinions on the item and related topics. Mrs. Kerekes felt there was an improper motion and the item should be worded as a "withdrawal." Discussion included the wording of the item as well as references to Roberts Rules and protocol for bringing the item back to the Board for reconsideration.
A short break followed the action on this item. (Audio was muted during the break and inadvertently not resumed until item D4.)

There was lengthy discussion in which Board members were given the opportunity to voice their opinions and ask questions. Terry Connor, Chief of Secondary Schools, clarified that the state standards, indeed, refer to evolution as a "scientific theory" and that the district must have a major tool, referring to the textbook under consideration, for teaching state science standards. David D'Agata, Board Attorney, reviewed cases pertaining to evolution and referenced Florida Statutes which set forth the Board's duties regarding instructional materials.
