Make-up days, budget priority for school board
Snow make-up days and budget mediation are top priorities for the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education’s 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 board’s 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 system’s top capital needs.
The school system’s 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 system’s 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 January’s budget.
The board meets Monday at 5 p.m. at the school system administrative offices, 110 S. Long St. in East Spencer.
