Other action items on their agenda include approval of: a Budget Guarantee Resolution for 2013-2014; an amended Fee Schedule for 2013-14; and Kindergarten Summer School.
The Board is also expected to discuss several matters prior to adjournment. That includes issues pertaining: to a School Resource Officer (SRO), and additional teachers for…the Middle School 7th grade Social Studies class, a paraprofessional for Middle School Special Education, and paraprofessional for the High School English as a Second Language (ESL) and English Language Learner (ELL) programs.
The Atlantic School Board will also discuss: The need for an additional Mobile Classroom; the District’s Technology Plan, and, the adding of extra curricular activities. In a previous Board meeting, information about a survey of students asking about adding additional activities, including bowling, swimming, archery, and dance, was discussed. Activities Director Josh Rasmussen said if activities are added, it would take some time to implement a schedule, perhaps as much as a year.
