The Worcester School Committee meets this Thursday, September 3. You can find the agenda here.
We’ll have the opening of school report at our next meeting, I’m told, once we get the numbers clear.
Our student reps are back! Looking forward to their contributions!
It’s the hiring report! Thus while face of the agenda doesn’t look very long, here’s what the School Committee, with backup, version looks like:
And yes, I’ll read every page! Thanks to the HR department for getting the information together!
We have a reponse on clearing up the grounds at City View (it happened).
We have a couple of responses [PDF] coming from our budget session: the first clears up Miss Biancheria’s query regarding the IT department; the third describes the school fruit and vegetable grant. The middle one is pretty interesting, as it deliniates school security spending. As you can see in the backup, more than double the designated school security budget is spent on security from the facilities budget.
We have the (now graduated) Doherty students coming to talk to us about their mentoring proposal.
We have recognitions for Mock Trial, for the library foundation awards, for the Boys and Girls Club awards, for Melissa Watson and the 1000 Watts barber shop, and for Mr. Twiss and the Burncoat Madrigals.
We’re being asked to accept a donation from the Emerald Club for iPads for Belmont Street School.
We’re being reminded of International Walk to School Day (October 7) and Manufacturing Day (October 2).
And we’re being asked to appoint four school nurses.
There is NO executive session this week.
