Halifax County trustees meet in Meadville for reorganization session / January 08, 2018
The Halifax County School Board will meet tonight at 6 p.m. at Meadville Elementary School, where the first item of business will be the election of a chairman and a vice chairman.

As part of their annual reorganizational meeting, trustees also will appoint a clerk and deputy clerk as well as a designee to attend school board meetings in the absence of the superintendent.

Members will also consider a schedule for meetings and the adoption of Robert’s Rules and the state VSBA Code of Conduct.

Following those actions, trustees will enter into closed session to consider personnel matters until approximately 7:30 p.m. at which time they will open to the public to hear any citizen public comments as well as hearing reports from Superintendent Mark Lineburg.

Lineburg is also expected to bring a recommendation for an architectural firm to the board from the facilities study committee.

Under new business the newly elected board chairman is then expected to appoint a Student Discipline Committee, and Lineburg and maintenance director Jay Jennings will bring a capital improvement plan for the board to consider.

The superintendent will also announce a change in who signs for petty cash accounts.

Meadville Elementary will be the featured “spotlight school” during the Monday meeting.
