35. School Board Member Comments

Mrs. Hanson discussed the positive perspective that can be seen in various issues and appreciated the ribbon-cutting ceremony at Orange Park High School.

Mrs. Clark noted the number of events being held this month.  She also indicated that she does not want to see an increase in housing prices due to impact fees but, based on the needs of infrastructure, she does not believe this is a bad decision to make and enforce.  She also commended student Isabelle Carter, Orange Park High, for winning the Miss High School Sweetheart pageant and appreciated Ms. Carter's contribution of numerous volunteer hours to the community.

Mrs. Skipper noted that she has always been opposed to fees and taxes but that, when examining the growth in Clay County, students have to be a priority and focus.  She also appreciated the comments of the public speakers this evening.

Mrs. Bolla distributed information to the board and requested the board's consideration to participate in the Master Board program sponsored by Florida School Boards Association in order to increase collaboration between board members and the superintendent.  Mrs. Gilhousen affirmed the value of this process and the efficiency and effectiveness that can be brought to the board through this training.  This opportunity will be discussed further at a future meeting.  Mrs. Bolla participated in the interviews for the Teacher of the Year Finalists and appreciates the phenomenal teachers in this county.  She attended the Bannerman Learning Center Christmas lunch as well as Special Olympics held at Ridgeview High.  Tools4Schools provided an opportunity for teachers to obtain needed materials for their classroom, and the generosity of Garber Automall for providing site space for Tools4Schools as well as generous rewards for the Teacher of the Year and Support-Related Employee of the Year was noted.  She also encouraged qualifying families to participate in Dolly Parton's Imagination Library.

Mrs. Gilhousen hoped all enjoyed a restful holiday season.
