Rock Hill School Board May Business Meeting Notes

These are my notes from the May Rock Hill School Board business meeting held on May 23, 2011:
  • The board approved the consent agenda with a 7-0 vote. Included in the consent agenda was; minutes of the April 25 and May 9 board meetings; personnel recommendations; use-of-facilities requests from Impact Church, World Changers and YMCA; textbook adoptions for school year 2011-12; A Field Trip Request for York Road Elementary School; board travel for Jane Sharp and Ginny Moe to attend New Board Orientation in Columbia (required by state law for all new school board members); and distribution of Jim Vining's board compensation for May to the Middle School Honors Choir.
  • The board approved second reading of Policy JLA by a 7-0 vote. This now becomes policy and will require all students to show proof of insurance or to purchase insurance through the school before they will be allowed to participate in any activities related to sports, cheer-leading, or band.
  • The board recognized winners of the S.C. History Day Competition who have qualified to compete in National History Day competition this summer.
  • The board recognized adviser Cindy Koon and two members of the staff of South Pointe High School's newspaper, "South Pointe in the News (SPiN)" on their 4th state championship in Class 2. Individual members of the staff were also recognized for their leadership and awards received this past school year.
  • The board recognized Patti Tate, Northwestern  High School and District Teacher of the Year, on her selection as the South Carolina Teacher of the Year, 2011-12;
  • The board listened to teachers Derek McQuiston (India Hook Elementary School), Chris Odom (Dutchman Creek Middle School), and Chris Rashley (Rock Hill High School) and several of their students showcase their work using iPods and iPads. All three teachers mentioned the benefits of having a paperless classroom. 
  • The board met in Executive Session for a student attendance matter and a contractual matter with the city.
