Architect on school board agenda Monday

The Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education plans to vote Monday on hiring an architectural firm for the Knox Middle School and consolidated elementary school projects, as well as receive a progress report on the district’s central office building.
The board will meet for a work session at 4 p.m. at the school system’s Ellis Street administrative offices, 314 N. Ellis St.
Superintendent Dr. Lynn Moody will also ask board members if they want to sell the Kizer building. The old school building is in poor condition and has been used for storage for many years.
In an email, Moody said she wants “some direction from them about if they want to dispose of this unused property.”
She added there was no rush, and there are no offers on the property.
The board will also look at several technology policies, including ones for responsible usage, Internet safety and employee use of social media.
It will look at a number of other policies as well. They deal with the authority of school personnel; managing student behavior; rules for seclusion and restraint; parental involvement; student-staff relations and discrimination, harassment and bullying
The agenda lists the district’s annual facility and program agreement with local YMCAs. The agreement allows the YMCA to access various schools for after-school care programs, and allows the school system to use YMCA facilities for school-sponsored events.
The final discussion or action item for the evening is the district’s matching funds application for improvement projects.
