4. School Board Member Comments

Mrs. Clark discussed some confusion surrounding board policy passed at the last school board meeting and a communication given to teachers by the union re curriculum council, indicating Bruce Bickner, School Board Attorney, and Roger Dailey, Chief Academic Officer, would be providing clarification on these matters.  Superintendent Broskie advised that Clay County District Schools and Clay County Education Association are two different entities.  He also indicated, re curriculum council, that the district has a multi-faceted way to ensure we are in compliance with statute, which will be followed.

Mrs. Kerekes complimented staff on a relatively smooth opening of schools and appreciated district staff working as a team and the value of teachers and support employees.  She also indicated Ridgeview Elementary School is in need of a covered walkway for ESE students.

Mrs. Bullock thanked Bruce Harvin in Operations for meeting with a local group concerned about a memorial being taken down at the elementary school as well as Mr. Griffis' for attending an upcoming meeting.  She also appreciated assistance from Lance Addison, Coordinator of Planning and Inter-Governmental Relations and Kenneth Wagner, Chief of Police, CCDS, to discuss community members' concerns about a Dollar General being built across from Clay Hill Elementary and the safety and traffic flow relative to that construction.

Mrs. Bolla extended gratitude to Scott Wiand, Interim Director of Transportation, for driving a bus in the face of driver shortages.  She also appreciated the "first day of school invitations" and the collaboration among schools.
