Halifax County trustees consider expansion of facilities committee / November 13, 2017
The Halifax County School Board will meet tonight, with the public session beginning around 7:30 p.m. The meeting will be held in the second floor meeting room of the Mary Bethune Complex.

An early item of business is a presentation by students and staff at Scottsburg Elementary School. Activities at Sydnor Jennings Elementary and Halifax County Middle School have been presented at previous meetings this fall.

Also, Devin Hall with AstroCamp Virginia is expected to present information on the summertime STEM camp program. (STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math). AstroCamp Virginia operated for its first year at the former site of Camp Staunton Meadows near Clover.

Superintendent of Schools Mark Lineburg is expected to update trustees on various school projects, and he will be asking that more members be approved to serve on the school facilities study committee.

Both Lineburg and Keith McDowell of the transportation department are expected for approval of a grant application for funds to purchase new buses from the Thomas Built Bus company.

Lineburg also will discuss possible off-site locations for both the December and January school board meetings.
