Halifax County Trustees expected to name new vice chairman / September 09, 2019

The Halifax County School Board will convene tonight at Clays Mill Elementary School as trustees continue their practice of holding periodic meetings at school sites around the county.

The major item of business comes with the board down by a member: after the resignation of Chairman Joe Gasperini in August, Vice Chair Sandra Garner-Coleman has taken over the chairman’s gavel, and trustees must choose her replacement as vice chair.

Tonight’s meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Clays Mill Elementary. After remarks by Garner-Coleman and Superintendent of Schools Mark Lineburg, the spotlight will fall on students and teachers at Clays Mill as they give a presentation on activities at their school.

Also on the agenda, for open session, trustees will get the latest update on a proposed random drug testing policy for students taking part in sports and other after-school activities. The School Board has debated the pros and cons of random drug testing at a number of meetings, and last month asked Jeff Davis, director of student services, to come back with more information for tonight’s session.

Also tonight, finance director Robert Aylor is expected to discuss the timeline for putting together next year’s budget.
