Policy Committee meeting, May 2

Friday, May 3, 2013 — The Policy Committee of the Stanly County Board of Education met Thursday evening for the purposes of reviewing four current policies and a single new one.

The first policy discussed was Policy 1320/3560, Title 1 Parent Involvement. At the onset, it was determined that the policy should be renamed Policy 3560 and within the text of the new draft, it’s new description reads “Title 1 Parent and Family Engagement.”

This policy basically states what parent and family engagement qualifies as and outlines acceptable means of participation.

“With this policy we’re cleaning up the wording in a lot of places. We’re aligning the policy with what they’re doing now in Title 1 schools,” said Susan Brooks, federal programs director for SCS.

  • Doug Creamer Friends and contentment

    Last week I made my annual trip up the mountain to Sparta. My friends have a secluded home near a babbling brook. Their home and property are a haven for peace. It’s a two-plus hour ride to their home that doesn’t feel that long because I look so forward to my time with this great couple. When I arrive, the conversation seems to pick up right where we left it the last time we saw each other.
