But the blog you've followed in the past will be a bit different for the time being. Patch is trying out a new live-blogging platform that not only has a new look but also new features, such as commenting from Facebook and blocking commenters who use inappropriate language.
This is still in the "test drive" phase, so there could be some glitches and response to comments might be a bit slower than normal. Of course, we want to hear what you think about the new blogging system. E-mail Frankfort Patch editor Joe Vince at firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts.
As for what's on tap for the meeting you'll be following, here's a look at some of the agenda items:
- A board discussion on classroom sizes
- Approval to sell surplus furniture to Lincoln-Way District 843
