A lot of the discussion — building maintenance, referendum questions on the ballot, teacher pay, closing Lincoln — centered around how the board and how the district should better engage with the community.
Jackson, whose family is directly impacted by the closing of Lincoln, also discussed the failed plan to build a $194.7 million high school, the upcoming six-year, $60 million operating budget referendum, his experience as a referee, plus what he thinks about the budget talks going through the state Legislature right now.
