Reading is fun and mental!

I came across this in the meeting notes for the Methuen School Committee.
They are required to vote on School Choice each year.
These are the minutes from TRANSCRIPT OF PUBLIC RECORD OF THE METHUEN SCHOOL COMMITTEE BUSINESS SESSION OF May 12, 2008.
I transcribed exactly as record states. (Simple cut and Paste)
Please read this and determine if the unanimous vote is for or against school choice?
*NEW BUSINESS:
A. 2008-2009 School Choice Program
Dr. Whitten asked the Committee to accept the 2008-2009 School Choice Program.
The Education Reform Act of 1993 presumes that each school district will admit non-resident students under the School Choice Program unless there is a vote by the local School Committee not to participate in the program.
Due to severe space and class size restraints, Dr.Whitten recommended that the Methuen School Committee vote not to participate in the School Choice Program for the 2008-2009 school year.

MOTION: Robert Vogler made a motion to accept the 2008-2009 School Choice Program.
Kenneth Henrick seconded.

VOTE: 7-0-0 UNAMINOUS

So did we accept or reject school choice based on the meeting minutes?

    So reading the meeting minutes for the next year we find a much clearer statement.
    TRANSCRIPT OF PUBLIC RECORD METHUEN SCHOOL COMMITTEE MEETING at 7:00 pm duly posted for Monday May 11,2009

    6. New Business (first read)
    a. School Choice Participation – Vote

    MOTION BY: Mr. Vogler seconded by Mr. Kazanjian to accept the Superintendent’s choice not to participate

    I noted that this was a first read. That means that it must have a second read to become approved.
    I was unable to find the second read on this measure. Again I ask, did we accept this or not?
