We're live-blogging the regular Dec. 8 meeting of the Cobb County Board of Education, featuring another effort by the superintendent, Michael Hinojosa, to for creating future school calendars.
We're trying something different with this live blog, watching the meeting on TV and commenting and reporting from a safe distance with a better Internet connection. Join in the fun by commenting in the blog above or the comment space below.
The Board of Education closed its year under the chairmanship of Alison Bartlett with a night of good feelings and holiday cheer.
The board approved every proposal on the agenda, and every vote during the night was unanimous except one: Smyrna representative Tim Stultz voted no when the board approved the addition of restrooms at the softball/baseball complexes at and high schools.
No board member even commented on Superintendent Michael Hinojosa's latest plan for a committee to create calendar recommendations. His proposal is now school district policy, so a committee of 21 people will start working on the 2013-14 calendar in August and present a recommendation to the board in October.

We'll have a story later on today's earlier called meeting about open records and open meetings.
