Jordan Henry Wants More Time: 8/8/23 GUSD Board Meeting Recap
Updated: Aug 12
Here we see familiar faces at the GUSD Board meeting on August 8th, 2023. Based on publicly available information, almost none of the speakers in the Henry crew have children in GUSD.
It's unclear where these public commenters are getting their information from.
Jordan Henry used most of his 3 minutes to ask for 5 minutes. Once his 3 minutes were up, the Board adjourned to closed session, as planned on the public agenda.
Several men without children in GUSD or any apparent connection to the District commented, including failed Glendale City Council candidate Mike Mohill.
Karine Grigorian was also there (photo below). Has no children at all, and based on publicly available records does not live in Glendale.
HASMIK BEZIRDZHYAN and Ed Torosyan also attended. Hasmik runs a homeschooling business and has no children in GUSD. It's unclear whether Ed Torosyan has children in GUSD.
Celena Mesa - who does not send her children to GUSD or any other public school - used her time to read from a book that was never approved for use in GUSD. Mesa appeared to spend time last week putting up anti-GUSD banners on freeway overpasses (photo below).
Aneta Krpekyan, a GUSD parent, appeared to criticize GUSD for sending staff home early from the Jackson Street building for their safety, comparing the closure to 'Nazi, Germany' in her public Instagram Stories.
(Bathroom use was allowed for meeting attendees).
The Board Policy governing public communications has been amended by unanimous board vote.
Parking lot closures and stricter security measures are put into place when there are credible threats of violence.
Yeva Babayan also stopped by, as did Manuk Grigoryan and Alen Khanyan.
