The Atlantic Community School District’s Board of Education will hold a regular meeting tonight at the High School. During the 7:30-p.m. session in the Media Center, the Board will discuss possibly adding more staff for the 2013-2014 school year. According to Superintendent Dr. Michael Amstein, Washington Elementary Principal Stacey Hornung believes an additional first grade teacher and third grade teacher would be needed for the elementary school, due to the number of students coming into those classes next year.
Amstein said also, assistants may be needed for English Language Learners at the high school and Special Education department, along with a school nurse for the Level III program. The Board is expected to act tonight as well, on Volunteer coaches contracts, and any resignations to come before them.
In other business, the Atlantic School Board will act on approving the 2013-2014 School Lunch prices, Seasonal/Substitute teacher rates, and teacher recommendations for the 2013 Summer School. The Board will also receive an update on the Atlantic Middle School Construction project, from the district’s contracted architectural firm.
