Halifax County trustees to meet Thursday

SoVaNow.com / October 14, 2013
The Halifax County School Board will hold its regular monthly meeting four days later than usual due to Monday’s Columbus Day holiday.

In place of the standard Monday night meeting, trustees will gather Thursday at 6 p.m. to discuss several unfinished items of business as well as several new business matters. The meeting is set for the second floor meeting room at the Bethune Complex in Halifax.

The agenda includes a report by Nancy Zirkle on state accreditation of Halifax County schools, and another report by Audrey Davidson on the work of the Halifax County Public School Education Foundation.

School Board members Roger Long and Phyllis Smith are expected to present the findings of an employee compensation report that the two trustees have developed with the aid of school staff.

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Merle Herndon is expected to lead a discussion on rejoining the Regional Governor’s School for academically advanced students. The county school division pulled out of the Regional Governor’s School four years ago due to budget woes.

Under new business, Dave Guill of the Transportation Department will advise trustees about the upcoming surplus school bus sale and Finance Director Jay Camp will report on the system’s disability insurance plan.

Herndon will propose a new timeline for development of the coming year’s school budget, and Board Chairman Kim Farson will appoint a committee to begin work on the 2014-15 budget.

Dr. Julie Brown, project director for the Danville River Region Collaborative, will report to the board on the SOVA Certified Workforce Ready Community Initiative.

Under citizen comments, Greg Donner will bring comments from the Halifax County Little Theatre.
