If the weather cooperates, the Kingston Board of Education will be meeting tomorrow February 19, 2014 at Robert Graves Elementary School. UPDATE 2/19/14 3pm District clerk confirms BOE meeting is still being held even though after school activities are canceled. Quarterly update on Board/Superintendent Goals moved to 3/5/14.
I would like to draw your attention to several items on the agenda that I think are of particular note to parents.
The first reading of changes to the School Volunteer Policy #1250 is on the agenda. Changes of particular note to parents include requirements for room parents, classroom readers and field trip chaperons (tier 2 volunteers).
The Superintendent’s Report includes the 2nd Century Project (the high school capital project) and the quarterly update on Board/Superintendent Goals (curriculum, facilities, budget, student achievement and transitions/redistricting). The November update on Board/Superintendent Goals had a lot of details about Common Core implementation, middle school changes, the KHS Scholar’s Academy and other topics that parents are often talking about so I recommend parents attend for this update if at all possible.
The meeting agenda is posted on the school district website. Pages 8 and 9 contain the updated School Volunteer Policy #1250.
The September 18, 2013 BOE meeting minutes contain the Superintendent Goals that are being reported on at the meeting tomorrow.
Are there other topics that you think parents should particularly note as you read through the agenda?
