Monticello School Board – Concerned Parent, Handbook, & Boys and Girls Club

July 17th, 2014 by

The Monticello School Board met Tuesday evening, July 15 for their regularly scheduled meeting with all members present.

The meeting opened with the introduction of Ms. Judy Holloway, the new high school principal.

Minutes of last month’s meeting were approved, and the financial report was reviewed and approved.

The Board was addressed by a parent, concerned about math education. He asked the School Board to review and revise the math evaluation testing approach, as well as revising the after-school program to better mesh with, support and reinforce what is taught in the classroom.

In further business, the Board voted to approve the District’s participation in Federal Programs and Grants for 2014-2015. Milk and bread bids were discussed and approved, as well.

Mr. Ray Ryburn and Dr. Betty Gragg were present to represent the Boys and Girls Club. Mr. Ryburn addressed the Board to request approval from the Board to continue renting the School’s facilities for the Boys and Girls Club. The Board approved the request.

Other business covered included approval of Board meetings for 2014-2015. Ms. Judy Holloway presented articles of the MHS handbook for approval. Mr. Danny Lloyd presented the 2013-2014 transportation report.

Superintendent Harper announced that the first day of school will be August 18.

One Response to “Monticello School Board – Concerned Parent, Handbook, & Boys and Girls Club”

  1. Sandy says:

    I hope the School Board will seriously take into account what Dr. Joe Miles said about the math program. Many students do not know basic math before it is time for higher level math courses. It is a problem and so discouraging. It is not just a Monticello issue; it is everywhere. I wish there could be general math courses as in years past for those students who cannot comprehend or pass high level math courses. Such students are more apt to use basic, general math instead of algebra or geometry in their world of work. There are students who cannot pass high level math no matter how many times they take the course, yet they do not qualify for special education. These students are falling through the cracks. I do understand certain course choices are out of the hands of the local school districts.
    So sad!!
