Halifax County trustees to meet Monday

SoVaNow.com / July 08, 2013
The Halifax County School Board will meet this afternoon for a work session beginning at 5 p.m. in the school conference room at the Mary Bethune Center. During the session, trustees will hear a report from School Maintenance Director Larry Roller on an energy conservation plan called “Cenergistic.”

Also during the afternoon session, board members will hear from Director of Secondary Education Frosty Owens, who will discuss policy changes that are set to be included in this year’s Student Code of Conduct handbook.

Following the hour-long work session, trustees will move to the second floor meeting room of the Mary Bethune Complex for their regular monthly session which begins at 6 p.m.

At this time, trustees will get an update on revisions to the 2013-14 budget with the latest state funding figures included. They will also chose a delegate and an alternate to attend the fall Virginia School Board Association Convention.

Two members will be named to sign checks in the absence of the superintendent.

Trustees will then vote on changes to the Student Code of Conduct handbook, which will be revised for the coming school year.

Finance Director Jay Camp will present the June financial report and request permission to pay the bills.

Trustees then are expected to enter into closed session to discuss discipline and personnel matters.
