DRAFT

Because of lost working days due to snow, we will extend one more
week, to March 6

We will still finish Phase III by the end of next week, with next step
recommendations for current and future BPS leadership

Our last week will be used to do one on one conversations with


SteerCo. members to make sure all perspectives and reactions
across the full document can be captured

Additionally, we are assembling a summary document for the mayor


and will want to incorporate feedback on that document
