Budget matters up for discussion at school board meeting Monday

The Rowan-Salisbury Schools Board of Education will meet Monday for a regularly scheduled meeting.
Although Chairman Dr. Richard Miller says the board will “most likely” discuss matters concerning budget mediation and an impasse with county commissioners with its attorney during closed session, the board also has a full agenda of other things to discuss as well.
“We’re going to be adopting a new evaluation process for the superintendent,” Miller said.
He added they would discuss energy and roofing contracts and other capital projects.
There will also be a “fairly routine” amendment for the December 2013 budget. The board will discuss and adjust the budget based on the actual funding and cost from the month.
Assistant Superintendent Nathan Currie will present a memorandum of understanding for middle school resource officer services to the board.
Board members will review new courses for next school year, including the new fire and public safety curriculum at South Rowan High School and a number of new arts classes at Carson High School.
The minimum requirements for high school graduation will be reviewed and updated. The board will also decide if they will provide a waiver for Rowan County Early College students for the local arts education requirement, because the school doesn’t have a certified arts education teacher on staff.
Student transfer and volunteer policies will be reviewed for final approval.
A field trip to the Outer Banks for Mt. Ulla Elementary School fourth-graders and a field trip to Emerald Isle for Salisbury High School AP Environmental Science students will be brought before the board for approval.
The Board of Education will also recognize a number of students and staff for a wide variety of achievements.
“There are a lot of great things going on in the system,” Miller said.
The board meets at 5 p.m. at the school system administrative offices, 110 S. Long St. in East Spencer.
