Preliminary results from the state board of education confirmed Calhoun City Schools are among 46 districts where all schools made Adequate Yearly Progress.
The announcement came during the Calhoun City Schools Board of Education July meeting.
“Calhoun City Schools has met AYP. We’re excited and proud of our teachers and students for showing what they know,” said Superintendent Michele Taylor.
Two county schools, Sonoraville East Middle School and Gordon Central High School, did not meet AYP re-quirements in preliminary reports. The county system is appealing those results, based on an error in student in-formation.
The board discussed the 2010 budget planning calendar and the changes necessary to accommodate the latest budget cuts, which include a three-day furlough for teachers. “We will consider this as we move forward with our planning,” said Taylor.
After approving the financial report, Board Chair Amy Atkinson expressed the board’s appreciation to Financial Director Don Hood for his attention to detail and countless hours of service.
The Superintendent’s reports were approved after a brief overview by Superintendent Taylor and Assistant Su-perintendent Michelle Knight. Detailed reports on AYP, Teaching and Learning, School Resource Officers and Technology were presented to the board during their noon work session.
In New business the board approved all fundraiser and field trip requests, contracted services for speech ther-apy education and discussed food and supply bids and an Ombudsman Center site location.
The board adjourned after an executive session to discuss personnel.
