School board going behind closed doors on mediation Field trips, budget mediation on agenda

The Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education plans to discuss budget mediation in closed session during Monday’s meeting, according to a meeting agenda.
In open session, the board will discuss preparations for the 2014-15 budget and should approve any county appropriation requests.
Vice chairwoman Kay Wright Norman will present an update on the board’s strategic planning process, including goals and strategies for the school system over the next few years. A public presentation of the finalized strategic plan will be scheduled for May.
Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum Dr. Julie Morrow will talk to the board about extending the school day next year.
The board will also vote whether or not to approve field trips for West Rowan High School’s chorus, Salisbury High School’s Advanced Placement environmental science class, South Rowan High School’s masonry class, Rowan County Early College and a joint trip for North and West Rowan high schools’ Health Occupations Student Associations.
In addition, the board will review various field trip policies and regulations.
Assistant Superintendent of Administration Nathan Currie will provide an overview of policy conversion with the North Carolina School Board’s Association.
“They have a process in which they work with school boards across the state in helping them adopt better policies,” Currie said.
The policy conversion would help the school system better streamline their policies and provide easier access to those policies by the general public.
The board will look at budget amendments for the month of February and school meal prices for next school year. They will also honor Rowan-Salisbury students and staff for notable achievements.
The meeting will be Monday at 5 p.m. at the school administration offices, 110 S. Long St. in East Spencer.
