Board of Education moves meeting to Tuesday

The Wilson County Board of Education put off its normal Monday night meeting until Tuesday due to the Labor Day holiday.

Now that schools are in full swing and the budget was passed, Director of Schools Tim Setterlund said the meeting’s agenda looked “pretty routine.”

With the recommendation from the director, the board will look to approve changes to a few board policies. Those policies include classifications and qualifications of personnel, attendance of non-resident students and transfers within the system, among others.

The board will look to approve their annual agenda and approve salary schedules for the 2013-14 fiscal year.

The board will also look to approve a social studies adoption committee.

Setterlund said each year in the state on a rotating basis the districts rebid for textbooks.

“This committee will come together to evaluate all the publishers of social studies textbooks and vote and recommend what we should purchase,” Setterlund said.

According to the agenda, the board will also be looking to approve a proposed change for the last week of school in the 2013-14 school calendar. The change would make the last day for students May 29 instead of May 30. It would also be a half-day for students.

The board will also look to elect a new board chairman and vice chairman.
