A report on the opening of schools last month will be presented to the Board of Education during its meeting tonight, to give the members an idea of how smoothly (or not) the opening weeks went for Lincoln County students.
Between 11,000 and 12,000 children returned for the 2012-2013 school year, Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources Matt Stover told the Times-News earlier this month. The amount of local youth who went back to class in August was relatively close to what it was last year, Stover estimated.
Other items to be discussed:
Approval of the county’s Strategic Plan for school years 2012-2015 — an illustration of the school system’s direction in upcoming years to improve and fulfill its goals.
Recognition of Lincolnton High’s Air Force Junior ROTC group, and Rhyne Financial’s work to obtain a $10,000-grant for the county’s Public Education Foundation.
East Lincoln Betterment Association will show a presentation.
Discussion of the N.C. School Board Association’s District 6 meeting.
An update on school construction projects.
The first Board of Education meeting of the school year will be held at 6:30 p.m., tonight, at the school board office, 353 N. Generals Blvd.
