Board meeting notes

The Talladega City Board of Education met this past Thursday. Highlights of the meeting were as follows:
  • Mary A. Powell was approved for employment as 1st grade teachers at Houston Elementary.
  • The budget for fiscal year 2007-2008 was approved.
  • The Capital Plan was approved.
  • Zora Ellis Jr. high was recognized for achieving AYP. The appeal that Mrs. Thomas filed with the Alabama State Department of Education was successful.
  • Leah Stephen's 2nd grade class from Northside-Hal Henderson was recognized. They received the "Watch Dog Award" by Dr. Horton. The students were commended for noticing sparks coming from wires on top of the building and reporting it to their teacher. The message conveyed is that school safety is a shared responsibility. Our students being alert and taking ownership in their school says something very positive about those young people.
  • Three schools were recognized by the Alabama State Department of Education for "Meeting the Challenge." Northside-Hal Henderson, C.L. Salter, and Houston Elementary Schools each received $5,000 for having achieved "Adequate Yearly Progress" for at least two consecutive years.
  • Dr. Frank Buck was recognized for his article "Managing Technology" featured nationally in the current issue of Principal magazine and for the his being awarded the "Chiquita Marbury Technology Innovation Award" for the state.
