Woman Overboard: Act II (Read act I below if you haven’t already.)

ACT 2 TWO WEEKS LATER

(CATHERINE ENTERS AND FINDS CALLY AND PATRICIA AT THE INFORMATION TABLE )

CALLY

What are you doing out of closed session so early?

CATHERINE

They said it had to do with “administrative personnel,” and that I could not be privy to the discussion. I’ll be talking about this with Etta Pim.

PATRICIA

Catherine, we wanted to thank you for getting a new school proposal for Shoreline on last week’s agenda.

CALLY

I am sorry it got tabled, again… are we surprised? But at least it pumped up the parents who were here. They are connecting with others and rallying individual administrators to find out when it will be “untabled.”

CATHERINE

Lovely. Public pressure is an enormous help.  Speaking of pressure, would you like to support me in court next week?

CALLY

Sure.

PATRICIA

What’s happening?

CATHERINE

The district is beginning their legal attack. They are petitioning the judge for my resignation as a teacher if I want to remain on the board. Mrs. Pim is not worried about the case, but she’s concerned about the viciousness of the attack.

CALLY

We’ll be there, Catherine, and we’ll bring others. Call me with the time and date.

(MRS. PIM ENTERS)

MRS. PIM

There are some weird people around here.

(HEADS TO ONE SIDE)

I just saw a man in the parking lot holding an umbrella and wiping the rain off his car with a handkerchief.

PATRICIA (LAUGHING)

That’s the superintendent fondling his new Mercedes. He requested a special parking place at the last meeting—so his new car wouldn’t get dinged. Catherine managed to get his request tabled.

(ALL LAUGH)

MRS. PIM (LOOKING OUT THE SIDE WINDOW)

What’s going on now?

PATRICIA

Oh, my God, would you look at that!

CALLY

I don’t believe it. Board members Stews and Hyde are putting sawhorses on either side of the superintendent’s car—with “No Parking” signs on them!

(ALL LAUGH)

(OTHER MEMBERS ENTER TALKING AND GIVE A COLD SHOULDER TO THE WOMEN.)

MRS. PIM  (MOVES CATHERINE DOWN FRONT)

I thought I’d stay for the meeting tonight and see if there’s been any attitude improvement.  Otherwise, I’ll see you in court next week. We’re going to win, so hang tough, Catherine. I have to add that these people you are working with…. are strange.

(SUPT. EEL, BOARD PRES. HYDE AND STEWS COME IN, SEAKING OFF RAIN.  EEL SETS HIS UMBRELLA AT SIDE)

CATHERINE

Thanks, Etta.

(BOARD PRES. HYDE HITS THE GAVEL TO START THE MEETING. ALL TAKE THEIR SEATS. CALLY, PATRICIA AND OTHERS SIT IN THE FRONT ROWS OF THE AUDIENCE )

BOARD PRES. HYDE

The meeting will come to order. You’ve all read the minutes in your packets. Are there any changes or additions?

CATHERINE

Yes, Mr. Hyde. On page four, section C, we voted to table the discussion on a new school at Shoreline.

(MUTTERS AMONG SOME BOARD MEMBERS AND ADMINISTRATORS)

I have had a number of phone calls, as I’m sure some of you did, from Shoreline parents who would like to attend that discussion. I wonder if Mr. Livers could set a specific date for his presentation.

SUPT. EEL

You are out of order, Mrs. Bloom! You can’t put pressure on staff to prepare the items you want. They have other duties too.

MR. STEWS

Are you trying to take over the meeting again Mrs. Bloom?

CATHERINE

Mr. Eel, I fully realize that we all work for the public. Although we board members are not paid, certainly you and the administration are well compensated. It would seem that our first priority is to deal with those items that deal with the students.

(MURMURS OF APPROVAL FROM THE AUDIENCE)

Would you not agree that a new school discussion takes precedence over your new “protected” parking space?

BOARD PRES. HYDE (HAMMERS HIS GAVEL)

There is no reason to get nasty, Mrs. Bloom. The most important person in this room is our superintendent, and you need to remember that.

MRS. BLAND

Catherine, you are not following established protocol! We simply listen to the administration’s presentations and then vote to support them. We need to keep these meeting dignified and unstressful.

MR. FORT

I would like to have a response to Catherine’s request for a date on the discussion. Mr. Livers?

MR. LIVERS

(SCRATCHING HIMSELF AND GOING THROUGH HIS PAPERS. AS HE DOES WHENEVER HE HAS A REQUEST)

Ah, well, uh, we are waiting for a response from one of our Shoreline principals. Who is attending a computer conference this week. Maybe at the next board meeting?

CATHERINE

Forgive me, Mr. Livers, but we need a definite date. These parents drive an hour round trip to attend a two- to three-hour meeting. I think we have a responsibility to them.

(MUCH APPROVAL FROM THE AUDIENCE)

SUPT. EEL

Oh, I see what you are doing here, Mrs. Bloom. You want to be popular with the audience and curry their favor.

CATHERINE

If that’s what being a board member entails, then  yes, you bet I am.

MR. STEWS (SPUTTERS)

Pulling all this crap! Where do you come off, lady?

CATHERINE (CHECKS ARMS, HEAD)

Nowhere, everything seems to be attached.

MR. STEWS (JUMPS UP, KNOCKS OVER HIS CHAIR)

I can’t take this irresponsibility this…this…undermining of the administration!

(STORMS OUT)

MR. FORT (COOLLY, LOOKING AT HIS CALENDAR)

 I am looking at our next meeting in two weeks Can you prepare for then, Mr. Livers? Or when?

MR. LIVERS (FLIPPING PAPERS, CONFERS WITH THE SUPERINTENDENT)

Well, yes, I guess we can shoot for that.

MR. FORT

All right. Let’s put that down as the first item on the agenda two weeks from now, and we can give that date to the Shoreline parents.

(APPROBATION FROM THE AUDIENCE)

BOARD PRES. HYDE

Now, can we have a motion and second for the last meeting’s minutes?

MRS. BLAND

 I move we accept the minutes of the last meeting.

MR. FORT

I second.

BOARD PRES. HYDE

Any nays? Then the minutes are accepted. Our next  item on the agenda is the budget. Mr. Livers?

MR. LIVERS

The preliminary budget is number three in your packet. The final budget will be due in six weeks. Are there any questions?

CATHERINE

Yes, Mr. Livers. There are a couple of areas that I find confusing. We agreed on two new school buses at the last meeting, costing approximately 85,000 dollars each, or 170,000 dollars total. Why do we have almost a million dollars in that account?

MR. LIVERS (SHUFFLING PAPERS)

Well, we always keep a reserve for “Economic Uncertainty.” This is normal practice for most districts

CATHERINE

“Economic Uncertainty”?

MR. FORT

Could you please explain what that means?

SUPT. EEL

Yes, Mr. Fort, can explain that. The state recommends that we keep about five per cent of our overall budget for “backup” in case of any kind of emergency. Let’s say we lost one or two of our buses during some flooding this year. We’d have to be prepared to immediately replace them.

MR. FORT

I believe in being conservative, Superintendent Eel, but we pay heavy insurance for the kinds of accidents that most schools have.

MR. LIVERS (SCRATCHING AND RUMMAGING THROUGH PAPERS)

I think the state just wants to know where the districts are economically.

(MR. STEWS COMES BACK WITH COFFEE)

MRS. BLAND

Catherine, this is the way we have always done it. By spreading the money throughout the various funds, we not only conserve it, but keep the teachers from trying to take it for raises.

(MUTTERING FROM THE AUDIENCE)

CATHERINE

Well, I can understand the need for a small reserve…but, overall, I found six million in padding throughout the budget.

(GASPS FROM THE AUDIENCE AND MUTTERS FROM THE ADMINISTRATION)

With our annual budget of forty million, a five per cent reserve would be two million.

(PAUSE)

Perhaps we can find a better use for the remaining four million perhaps a new school in Shoreline.

(CHEERS FROM AUDIENCE)

SUPT. EEL AND LIVERS (TOGETHER)

 YOU ARE OUT OF LINE!

LIVERS

Now wait just a minute….

SUPT. EEL (INTERRUPTS HIM)

You are forgetting, Mrs. Bloom, that you are just a teacher—and one we will have off this board in one week!

(HE STANDS UP AND YELLS)

You have no right to come in here and disrupt our normal process! You don’t know what you are talking about.

BOARD PRES. HYDE (BOARD PRES. HYDE HITS THE GAVEL)

We will come to order, please! Superintendent Eel, please sit down and calm down. Mrs. Bloom, you will refrain from disrupting this board meeting and from insisting the administration.

CATHERINE

Forgive me, that was not my intent.

MRS. PIM (RISES FROM THE AUDIENCE)

Excuse me, Mr. President, I wonder if I might say a few words.

(MUTTERING AMONG THE ADMINISTRATORS)

BOARD PRES. HYDE

I, uh, well….

MRS. PIM (TO THE PUBLIC PODIUM)

It relates to something the superintendent said.

BOARD PRES. HYDE

OK. Please be brief.

MRS. PIM

Thank you.

(LOOKS AT THE AUDIENCE)

I am Etta Pim, Mrs Bloom’s ACLU lawyer Mr. Eel just mentioned that Mrs. Bloom would “be off the board in one week” and I felt that statement needed some clarification. The administration, and the board, have hired a top-flight San Francisco legal firm-and I might add, a very expensive one-to take Mrs. Bloom to court next Tuesday. They have asked the judge to force her to either resign her teaching in order to remain on the board, or to resign her position on the board.

(MUTTERING FROM THE AUDIENCE)

I felt, since Mr. Eel mentioned it, that the public should know.  These plans were made in “closed session” from which they excluded Mrs. Bloom. Thank  you, Mr. President

(A HEAVY SILENCE ENSUES)

BOARD PRES. HYDE (BANGS THE GAVEL SEVERAL TIMES)

All right, this meeting will come to order. Let’s discuss the next item on the agenda.

MRS. BLAND

Oh, I just can’t take this anymore much stress. There’s too stress.

(SHE RISES)

I can’t handle stress or anxiety at all… my hands are shaking . Please  excuse me, I have to Leave. I have to resign this job…it’s just too stressful.

(SHE LEAVES)

LIVERS

You’ve done it again, Mrs. Bloom.

SUPT. EEL

This is all your fault.  You are now truly destroying this board by driving off the members.

(SUPPORTIVE REACTIONS FROM THE ADMINISTRATION, NEGATIVE FROM THE AUDIENCE)

CATHERINE

That’s not what I understood at the election celebration, Mr. Eel. Mrs. Bland’s husband was very unhappy that she ran for the board again and he made no bones about it. He said that you and Mr. Livers put undue pressure on her to run again, saying that she was “vital” to this administration. Certainly you are as much a part of her stress as I am.

MR. STEWS

Oh, that’s a crock, Mrs. Bloom! You’re making that up to exonerate yourself from the problems your election has caused this school district.

MR. FORT

I overheard Mr. Bland’s comments, Mr. Stews.

 (A QUIET CHANTING BEGINS OUTSIDE AND GETS LOUDER DURING; THIS NEXT SCENE)

BOARD PRES. HYDE

We are getting nowhere with tonight’s agenda, Could we please get back to item three, the Preliminary Budget?

MR. FORT

Yes, I would like to see this budget spread over a three-year period so that we can see how much money was spent, in each category, two years ago, last year, and this year. Since I am newly elected to this position, _it would be easier to get a handle on the expenses.

BOARD PRES. HYDE

We have talked about this before, Ms, Fort, and personally think that’s a good idea. Mr. Livers, is it possible for your staff to redo this budget for the next meeting?

Well, uh…

MR. LIVERS (SHUFFLES PAPERS)

I think the staff can do that.

(CHANTING GETS LOUDER)

BOARD PRES. HYDE

Mr. Fort, would you like to make this a proposal?

MR. FORT

Yes, I would.

CATHERINE

 I second.

BOARD PRES. HYDE

Any nays? All right. We will have the new format for the next meeting.

SUPT. EEL (RISES AND GOES TO THE WINDOW)

What is all that noise outside?

(SOME PEOPLE GO OVER TO THE WINDOW. STEWS AND HYDE GO OUT THE DOOR.)

Look at those students, they’ve got picket signs and they’re brushing against my car! What treachery is this? Why are they doing that? Mrs. Bloom, this is all your fault.

(HE RUNS OUT. CATHERINE MOVES DOWNSTAGE TO PATRICIA AND CALLY, WHILE OTHERS WATCH OUT THE WINDOW AND THE DOOR)

CATHERINE

Do you know anything about this?

CALLY (LAUGHING)

Yes. There was a board meeting about three months ago—before you were elected, and I think you were out of town at the time—where the administration asked the members to expand the secondary school day.

PATRICIA

That’s right.Eel felt “more is better” so he requested the junior and senior high students attend seven periods of classes a day instead of six. There was no consultation with parents, teachers, or, God forbid, students. The students only learned of this last month.

CALLY

And I say good for them! These kids are standing up for their rights.

SUPT. EEL (COMES BACK IN VERY AGITATED)

I need everybody to get outside and send these students home! Threaten them with expulsion if they don’t immediately disperse­­- Oh, and get their posters and signs.

(LOOKS OUT THE WINDOW)

Oh, my, they are touching my car again!

(RUSHES OUT) (CALLY GOES TO GET COFFEE. SOME OTHERS GO TO WINDOW, THEN GO OUT.)

CATHERINE

 I don’t believe this.

(GOES TO THE WINDOW, LAUGHS)

Where’s a camera!

CALLY

 What’s happening?

PATRICIA

Eel is spread-eagled over the hood of his car and yelling at the students.

(CHANTING GETS LOUDER)

[END OF ACT 2]

[ACT 3 TWO WEEKS LATER]

(CATHERINE AND ETTA PIM ARE SITTING NEAR THE AUDIENCE, DRINKING COFFEE.)

CATHERINE

Oh my God, Etta, where did you find the courage to stand alone, a female, in front of those five  snarling lawyers representing the district?

MRS. PIM

(LAUGHS, RISES TO GET MORE COFFEE, AND ENDS UP SITTING ON EDGE OF BOARD TABLE)

You simply concentrate on what has to be done.

Everything they’re doing to you is wrong, and that’s what I keep presenting to the Judge Also, Catherine, when the Judge looks at me, one female surrounded by these five howling wolves, it reflects your situation with the “Good Ol’ Boy” club here.

CATHERINE

I will never forget the comment made by the lawyer representing the Commission for School Administrators.

(SHE MOVES UP NEAR ETTA AND PANTOMIMES)

Judge Frick lowered his glasses, looked at lawyer Smith, and said, “Since you support retired teachers being on the board, Mr. Smith, why oppose Mrs. Bloom just because she’ still teaching?”

MRS. PIM (SPUTTERS AND CHOKES ON HER COFFEE)

That comment should be cast in gold!

(RISES)

“Because everyone knows, your Honor, that within a year, a retired teacher becomes pro-administration.”

CATHERINE

Judge Frick looked at me, removed his glasses, and shook while he was cleaning them.

MRS. PIM

I knew then that we had won the case.

(CALLY AND PATRICIA ENTER AND ALTERNATE GETTING COFFEE)

CALLY

Congratulations, Mrs. Pim, You did a hell of a job in court.

MRS. PIM

Thanks to you all for being there to support Mrs. Bloom.

PATRICIA

I wouldn’t have missed it. Hey, I really liked those picketing students behind Catherine when the TV crew was interviewing her.

CALLY

I think it was their chanting, “We shall overcome”  that inspired the national news to run it at 11:00 o’clock and again for two days.

PATRICIA

What’ s the present situation on the “more is better” seven-period day? Some of the students interviewed on TV came off sounding a lot more articulate than either our superintendent or board president.

CATHERINE

Tonight the board is going to vote on a commission to meet with parents, teachers, and students, and reevaluate the seven-period-day decision. But that process may be moot with the tremendous media coverage these students are getting

MRS. PIM

The American Civil Liberties Union is ready to help the students. Personally, I’ve never seen better organized rallies and protests. They are pursuing their rights in a very controlled and non-aggressive manner, and the national news made this district administration look like fools!

CALLY

I thought the TV close-up of Eel spread-eagled on his car did that!

(ALL LAUGH)

MRS. PIM

Catherine, on the downside, I just got notice from my office that the district has filed another suit against you.

CATHERINE

Oh, no.

MRS. PIM

This one is a double-edged sword. They are going to stop your paychecks while they ask the court to define what you can and cannot vote on at the board meetings.

PATRICIA

But I thought the Attorney general’s opinion did just that. He said she could vote on everything, but it would look better not to vote on teacher salaries.

MRS. PIM

And the Attorney General’s opinion will be my “gold card” in this next trial. Catherine, can you live without a paycheck this month if the case isn’t settled by the first?

CATHERINE

Yes.

CALLY

I just don’t believe these guys. I head through a friend in another school district that Superintendent Eel promised the Commission of School Superintendents that he, and he alone, would “stomp out this infamy of a teacher daring to confront the administration.”

(ALL LOOK AT HER AND GROAN.)

CATHERINE

A brave statement by a man who cries over “dings” on his car.

(LAUGHTER)

PATRICIA

Catherine, what do you think is going to happen with Shoreline tonight? I understand that the parents plan to pack the audience—and some of them are looking for blood.

(NOISE OF PEOPLE ENTERING)

Whoops, here they come. See you all after the meeting.

(BOARD MEMBERS AND ADMINISTRATORS ENTER. SOME GO FOR COFFEE, SOME TALK, AND SOME SIT AT THEIR SEATS.)

BOARD PRES. HYDE

If you all would sit down, we would like to begin the meeting.

(POUNDS THE GAVEL)

Thank you. Do we have anyone who wishes to make an “unscheduled public appearance”?

MRS. PIM

Yes, sir, I do.

(SHE GOES TO THE PUBLIC PODIUM.)

I am Mrs. Etta Pim, Mrs. Bloom’s ACLU lawyer. I would like to announce both to the board and to the public that, last Tuesday, Mrs. Bloom won the case that the district filed against her.

(CHEERS FROM THE PUBLIC AND MUTTERS FROM THE ADMINISTRATORS)

I would also like to announce that the District has filed another suit against Mrs. Bloom that will freeze her salary.

(ABSOLUTE QUIET)

This forth coming trial will be in Judge Frick’s courtroom, 10:00 AM next Tuesday, and you are all welcome to attend. Thank you.

(APPLAUSE FROM THE AUDIENCE AND NEGATIVE COMMENTS TOWARD THE DISTRICT)

BOARD PRES. HYDE

Uh, well, if there are no other “unscheduled appearances,” I will entertain a motion to pass the minutes of the last meeting.

MR. FORT

I move we accept the minutes.

CATHERINE

I second.

BOARD PRES. HYDE

Anyone opposed? All right, the minutes stand as written. Our first item on the agenda tonight is the overcrowded Shoreline situation, and it will be presented by Mr. Livers.

MR. LIVERS (SCRATCHING, AS USUAL)

Uh, if you will turn to page seven of the board book, you will see that staff did an excellent job of gathering all the information requested by various board members. You will see in A-1 that we could get by with transferring as few as 50 students. Our recommendation is to bus all the first grade students to two other district schools where they can be absorbed. Our only cost would be two new school buses.

MR. STEWS

Good recommendation,   Mr. Livers, and I applaud the administration for its effort in bringing this information to us so quickly.

(GROANS FROM AUDIENCE)

CATHERINE

Since this is your recommendation for next year, Mr. Livers, what is the plan for the following year? If the population grows, as is predicted, will we then bus the first and second grades? And the year after, the first three grades?

MR. LIVERS (ANGRY)

Mrs. Bloom, you are micro-managing again. I do believe that my staff knows more than you.

(A GROWLING FROM THE AUDIENCE CAUSES MR. EEL HAS TO GRAB LIVER’S ARM AND PULL HIM DOWN.)

MR. FORT

A one-year plan is unacceptable. We this board of trustees, are concerned about a long-range plan, and one that can benefit-our students. A 160 thousand dollar expense for two school buses for a single year’s plan doesn’t make any sense.

(CHEERS FROM THE AUDIENCE)

SUPT. EEL (EYEING THE AUDIENCE)

Now, Mr. Fort, You know that we are working on a long-range plan that should be agreeable to most everyone,

BOARD PRES. HYDE

Uh, maybe this would be a good time to hear from members of the audience.

PATRICIA (GOES TO THE PODIUM)

I would like to speak to the Shoreline issue. As PTA President for one of Shoreline’s elementary schools, I represent a large number of the parents. If you remember, our PTA met with the board last year, and, for the seven years prior to that, we continually met with the administration, asking, then begging, for another elementary school. Three years ago, Superintendent Eel said, and I quote, “We are working on a Strategic Plan as a precursor to any definitive educational plans.” We have asked frequently to see that “plan” and were ignored. You rejected our demographic study because the district hadn’t pre-approved it. Therefore, your recommendation tonight is totally unacceptable.

(CHEERS)

We don’t want any of our students bused when you have the money available to build another school. Your job is not to save money for “economic uncertainty,” but to do what is best for the students of this district. And that is to build another school.

Thank you.

(APPLAUSE AND CHEERS FROM THE AUDIENCE; ADMINISTRATORS NERVOUSLY CONFER WITH EACH OTHER.)

(CALLY GOES TO THE PUBLIC PODIUM. SHE HAS THE BUDGET WITH HER AND USES IT AS NECESSARY. A BRIGHT LIGHT COMES ON HER AS A TV CREW BEGINS TO FILM HER)

CALLY

I would also like to speak to the Shoreline issue. After studying the most recent budget, we found over six million dollars tucked away in various accounts.

(REACTION FROM THE AUDIENCE)

 If any board member so desires, I can tell you the pages and item numbers of these accounts.

(ADMINISTRATORS NERVOUSLY CONFER TOGETHER WHILE BOARD MEMBERS, OTHER THAN CATHERINE AND FORT LOOK FRIGHTENED. MR. STEWS STANDS UP AND YELLS.)

MR. STEWS

This is totally unacceptable!

(UNTIL TV LIGHT SHINES ON HIM AND HE ABRUPTLY SITS.)

(BOARD PRESIDENT HYDE KEEPS LOOKING AT THE ADMINISTRATION BUT GETS NO SUPPORT FROM THEM.)

BOARD PRES. HYDE

Well, OK, if none of you requires that information, I’ll come to the point. Maybe we could take four and a half million dollars from these accounts, still leaving the district two per cent for “economic uncertainty,” and build a new school in Shoreline.

(PAUSES. HUSH FALLS OVER THE AUDIENCE.)

CATHERINE

I move that we take four and a half million dollars from the budget and build a new school in Shoreline.

MR. FORT

I second the motion.

BOARD PRES. HYDE

Well, I, uh, Superintendent Eel?

SUPT. EEL (RISES, AND THE TV LIGHT SHINES ON HIM)

This, of course, was our long range plan, and provided for in our wonderful Strategic Plan. Under the circumstances, I don’t see why we can’t move it up.

CATHERINE

I call the question.

BOARD PRES. HYDE (TV LIGHTS ON HIM)

The question has been called. We will do a roll call vote on the motion to build a new school at Shoreline. I will call for the vote alphabetically. Mrs. Bloom?

CATHERINE

Yes.

BOARD PRES. HYDE

Mr. Fort?

MR. FORT

Yes.

BOARD PRES. HYDE

 I vote “yes,” and Mr. Stews?

MR. STEWS

Yeah.

BOARD PRES. HYDE

The motion passes.

(CHEERS AND DISTURBANCE FROM THE AUDIENCE, CALLY AND PATRICIA DANCING IN THE AISLE.)

BOARD PRES. HYDE (SHOUTS)

We will take a ten-minute break.

(SUPT EEL STARTS GLAD-HANDING THE AUDIENCE AS THOUGH THIS WERE HIS IDEA.)

MRS. PIM (COMES UP TO CATHERINE AND HUGS HER)

I can see why they so desperately want to get rid of you, Catherine!

CATHERINE

When people have had enough, they become very powerful.

(PATRICIA AND CALLY JOIN THEM)

Good job, you guys… and well done.

(A FEW HIGH-FIVES OR HANDSHAKES)

MRS. PIM

What’s next on the agenda tonight?

(A LOW CHANT OF “WE SHALL OVERCOME” BEGINS AND RAPIDLY ESCALATES)

Oh, no. The students are picketing this meeting?

CATHERINE

Absolutely.  What better time? If you really want to see something funny—watch Superintendent Eel.

SUPT. EEL (HEARS TRE CHANTING)

Oh, my God, they’re back, and they are going to “ding” my car! Stews, Hyde help me protect my car.

(AND THEY RUN OUT SIDE DOOR. ALL FREEZE.)
