Alberni School District receives $2 million in funding

Hamm made the remarks Monday night as part of her interim superintendent's report to the district's Board of Trustees at its meeting at Crestwood High School.

So far, administrators estimate that the district will need only two extra buses to accommodate next year's elementary reconfiguration, making for a total of 28 buses run each day in the district. "Period", School Board Chair Alva Striplin said, during Tuesday's meeting.

Athletic director Chris Golden said monies will go toward purchasing new uniforms and live streaming athletic events.

The board's next scheduled meeting is April 16. He said he thinks town board members should remain "cautious" when offering their opinion on a school board matter.

In other business, the board held public interviews for three candidates to replace former board member Ray White, who recently resigned.

"Be it resolved that the School Board declares that Leon County Schools will only allow State of Florida Criminal Justice Standards and Training certified law enforcement officers to be armed in our schools", read Striplin.

Input from the community has been vital in the search for a new superintendent, according to district officials.

"I don't want to take this center away from kids", Freve said, as litigation very well may not be pursued.

Prosser, who has served as superintendent for the York school district for nine years, said his last day is June 30.

Wade said she plans to assemble an advisory committee so she can have the opportunity to speak with parents about their children's experiences, and hear what they'd like to see in the district.

District staff had been planning to fill the position left open by last month's retirement of Loyal Carlon, the previous human resources director, and a job posting for that director-level position is still active on the district website. Rudnick says the move is meant to streamline the school schedule to make things easier on parents and their kids, as well as save the district money and give them the time and budget to recruit more and better teachers.

Mason is professional development coordinator in the Clarksville-Montgomery School System, Bennett said.

Elementary Principal Joseph Tsaveras said his portion of the budget will not increase and would maintain all current programs and staffing while also extending recess for students, expanding after-school activities, introducing robotics, expanding the yoga and mindfulness curriculum and more.

A program to educate students who "don't fit" the regular high school or who are at risk of not graduating high school will come back to the Grand Coulee Dam School District next year.

The possibility of an accidental discharge or of a student getting ahold of the gun also makes the proposal unappealing, she said.
