School board to discuss central office property
According to Chairman of the Board Dr. Richard Miller, the Rowan-Salisbury Board of education will discuss property and property acquisition for the district’s central office in closed session during Monday’s school board meeting.
“We’re hoping to decide what we’re doing,” he said.
In addition, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum Dr. Julie Morrow will lay out the Rowan-Salisbury School System’s literacy framework Monday at the school board meeting.
The board will hear an overview from a study of Rowan-Salisbury schools conducted by Safe Havens International, a nonprofit school safety consulting firm.
“It’s their preliminary report on what they’ve done,” Miller said.
Rowan-Salisbury Chief Financial Officer Tara Trexler and Accounting Manager Michael Croshaw will present 11 banking options to the board for 2014-17. The board is required to examine its banking services every three years.
The board will also decide whether or not to appoint Tom Bost to the Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Board of Trustees.
Bost holds one of several seats appointed by the Rowan-Salisbury School System, and is seeking reappointment as his term expires, Miller said.
The board will also hear a second reading on several policies, including the district’s vision and mission.
The board’s consent agenda includes approving minutes, the April budget amendments and financial summary, a uniform policy for Isenberg Elementary and field trips for South Rowan, Rowan County Early College and Carson.
The Board of Education will meet Monday at 5 p.m. at the district’s Long Street administrative offices, 110 S. Long St. in East Spencer, after a closed session conference call at 4 p.m. with its attorney.
