Brownwood school trustees will recognize the designation of Woodland Heights Elementary School as an “honor roll school” by the Texas Business and Education Coalition when they meet at 6:30 p.m. today at the administration office, 2707 Southside Dr.
That honor, along with several items of business related to the start of the fiscal year Sept. 1, are included on the agenda for this month’s board meeting.
According to the coalition’s Web page, being named to the honor roll is the state’s most prestigious academic award a Texas public school can receive. The list of 254 schools this year represents less than 4 percent of all schools in the state. A total of 206 elementary schools are listed.
The meeting will be preceded by a computer workshop for trustees at 5 p.m.
Action items on the agenda for tonight include consideration of approval of proposal for an SUV purchase, of a resolution designating county Extension agents as adjunct faculty members, of fund-raisers for this school year, of proposed library vendors for this school year, of 2009-2010 tax rates, of an addendum to a 2007 lease agreement with Central Texas Opportunities Head Start, and personnel needs — with a possible closed session.
Matters listed for discussion include a change policy for dual credit GPAs, swine flu and nursing report, Title I budget update, college readiness/ACT report, policy for future term contracts, date change for October and March board meetings and copier policy.
Reports include those on finances, public relations committee, construction and maintenance, and upcoming events.
