Highlights from 10/21/2010 school board meeting

October 22, 2010
  • The board approved the 5-year forecast for fiscal years 2010-11 through 2014-15.  We also discussed changing our approach to budgeting.
  • Dr. Farrell presented options for school calendars for the next two years (2011-12 and 2012-13).  The general approach is “start early, end early” – both calendars show a start date the last week of August, with school ending the last week of May.  Under discussion is using a 90-minute early release day one Friday every month for professional development.
  • The Junior High has received a $14,000 STEM grant from the University of Cincinnati.
