Make-up days, budget will be up for discussion at school board meeting

Snow make-up days and budget mediation are top priorities for the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Educationís meeting Monday.

Superintendent Dr. Lynn Moody will make her recommendation for snow make-up days and the board will make a decision.

Richard Schwartz, the school boardís mediation attorney, will advise the board concerning budget mediation and the upcoming joint meeting with county commissioners during closed session.

The board asked the mediator, Judge Willis Whichard, to declare an impasse between the two groups toward the end of January. Last week, Whichard decided not to declare an impasse and said the two groups should continue to meet and try to resolve their issues. The board will meet with commissioners Thursday to discuss funding for the school systemís top capital needs.

The school systemís public information officer, Rita Foil, will detail a field trip for the WRSS Student News Team for approval. A student from each of the school systemís six traditional high schools make up the news team. They were selected to present at the National School Public Relations Association conference in Baltimore.

The Board of Education will also recognize students and staff for accomplishments and approve any resolutions to Januaryís budget.

The board meets Monday at 5 p.m. at the school system administrative offices, 110 S. Long St. in East Spencer.
