School board to discuss strategic plan, contracts
The Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education plans to discuss progress on its strategic plan, as well as contracts for the central office and high school clubs at its meeting Monday.
The board will receive an update on the district’s strategic plan, as well as talk about a plan to create a public progress report on the school system’s website.
The strategic plan is not a “static document,” said Chairman of the Board Dr. Richard Miller. “We like to regularly check in.”
Assistant Superintendent of Operations Anthony Vann said he will present contracts for the central office’s architect and construction manager at risk.
The architecture contract with Ramsay, Burgin and Smith had to be modified to reflect the board’s decision to use a construction manager at risk and to adapt the plans to the North Main St. property.
This is a second reading of the contract.
The construction manager at risk contract is also a second reading. Vann said he hopes the board will approve the contract on Oct. 27.
He also said a guaranteed maximum price for the office should be available as well.
The board will also discuss the proposed matching funds projects for each of the district’s schools.
The board will also discuss extracurricular clubs for Rowan-Salisbury high schoolers, including the new permission slips and the lists of clubs and permissions granted at each high school.
They will also talk about the anticipated performance sores for each school. The official scores will be released by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction later this school year.
A bullying awareness proclamation, emergency epinephrine, volunteer background checks, retirement celebration and teacher recruitment are also on the agenda.
The board will meet Monday at its Ellis Street Executive Offices at 4 p.m., 314 N. Ellis St. in Salisbury.
