February Board of Education Regular Meeting Recap

The London City School District Board of Education began its February meeting by recognizing several “most improved” students for this school year. As part of its improvement process, the district and each individual school updates and monitors improvement data three times a year. The focus of this process is not only to improve organizationally, but more importantly, to help each student make progress. Students recognized at the February Board meeting have demonstrated significant academic and personal growth and are great examples of the district's mantra of "londonpossible." The following students were nominated by their principals and each school staff and recognized by the Board:

  • At London Elementary, Aiden Jackson, Nick Boring, and Jase Cox;
  • At London Middle School, Jozlyn Fisher, Conner Lacey, and Selena Wallace; and,
  • At London High School, David Kennedy, Andrew Ramsey, and Abbie Jones.

During the school spotlight portion of the meeting, the Board heard updates from London Middle School on their lunch bunch, which is designed to help foster student relationships. The Board also met new Tolles Superintendent, Emmy Beeson, who shared an update from the district’s local Career and Technical Center.

A few highlights of other Board action included:

  • Held a first reading on the school academic calendars for 2018-2019 and 2019-2020. The Board will vote to adopt both calendars at its March meeting. You can access a copy of the calendars here.
  • Approved the course guides for both London Middle School and London High School. Course guides will soon be uploaded to each school’s webpage. 
  • Approved a recommendation to purchase a new 78 passenger bus from Blue Bird using permanent improvement funds. The district is currently researching several used buses to replace other buses, which are quickly nearing the end of their usefulness.
  • Approved a recommendation to enter into a performance contract with Tyler Technologies to provide transportation management services including software, hardware, and other application services. The system will assist the district in improving efficiencies in terms of transportation routing and staffing and will be utilized to assist with enrollment forecasting.
  • Approved an annual College Credit Plus agreement with Clark State Community College;
  • Accepted a a 65 inch interactive whiteboard from the class of 2018, which will be installed in the LHS commons in order to display announcements and other programming.

Minutes of each meeting are approved the following month and then posted here.
