During the regular monthly meeting of the Hartselle City Board of Education, Superintendent Dr. Vic Wilson recognized each board member. January is School Board Recognition Month and Wilson presented each one with a certificate of recognition for the number of years they have served. Jennifer Sittason has served 10 years, Dr. James Joy nine  years, Board Chairman Randy Sparkman five years, Venita Jones four years and newest board member Mike Swafford, 6 months.

After a broadcast from Crestline TV highlighting happenings at the school, the board heard from CFSO Jonathan Craft. Craft reported that with 25% of the year complete the board is at $27.42% of revenue for the year and 26.55% of budgeted expenses. Year-to-date finances are at $229,500 revenue over expenses and the board has 3.38 months in reserve monies.

In his superintendent’s report, Wilson congratulated F.E. Burleson on their designation as a CLAS Banner School. Hartselle High also applied for the designation.

Wilson also thanked the central office staff, principals and assistant principals during the recent monitoring of the school by state officials.

Director of Teaching and Learning, Dr. Dee Dee Jones also thanked the principals and mentioned only six items were found during the process and three of the six were corrected before the state officials left. Most school systems usually have 12-14 issues so Hartselle was ahead of the game.

In other action the board:

• Approved the purchase of a new special needs bus for $91,543.84

• Approved two out-of-state field trips, one for HHS medical intern students, and the other for HHS health occupations students.

• Approved the 2016-2017 calendar

• Approved the first reading of a policy revision dealing with homeless students

 

In personnel items, the board:

• Approved leave request for Christy Zuck, BBES teacher and Sheryl Sharp, bookkeeper at Crestline

• Approved resignations for Amy Stadthagen, accounts payable at the central office and Rachel Berryhill, part-time speech pathologist at FEB

• Approved adding 12 substitutes for the second semester

• Approved Lisa McMurray to work part-time filling the accounts payable position, Dr. Kim Moody as virtual school consultant and Carrie Long as a homebound teacher.

•Approved Jack Phillips as a volunteer assistant coach for HJHS girl’s soccer.

The next board meeting will be Feb. 16, 2016, and will be held at the Hartselle Junior High School at 6 p.m.
