Public Hearing:
No citizens addressed the School Board about the proposed boundary attendance areas for the Sudley area elementary schools.
 
The School Board Approved:
  • February 6 as Digital Learning Day;
  • The School Board meeting minutes for January 2;
  • The proposed revisions to the FY 2011–15 Strategic Plan resulting from the No Child Left Behind Waiver; and
  • The Boundary Plan #3 prepared by the Stonewall Area Elementary School Boundary Planning Committee for Ellis, Loch Lomond, Mullen, Sinclair, Sudley, and West Gate Elementary Schools and, that rising fifth-graders at the affected schools be permitted to remain at their present elementary school for the 2013–14 school year, providing their own transportation.
 Policies and Regulations:
First review of revisions to Policy 305, “Procurement Card Management.” (No action is required on first reading.)
 
Citizen’s Comments:
Eric Levenberry Jr., a senior at Hylton High School, addressed the School Board by thanking them for his great education. He stated that athletics and education complement each other and both are important; football doesn’t last very long and education does. Among his many accomplishments, Eric was selected for First Team for All-State Football by the Virginia High School Coaches Association. He also received a full ride football scholarship to Florida State University.
 
Superintendent’s Time:
Dr. Steven L. Walts, Superintendent of Schools, made the following comments:
 
Twenty of our teachers have earned National Board Certification, with five of those teachers earning their 10-year re-certification. The voluntary certification process is a rigorous, performance-based assessment of skills and content knowledge that takes one to three years to complete. National Board Certification is the highest credential available to American educators. More details are available on our Web site.
 
January 20 through January 26 is School Principals Week in Virginia. This is a time to honor and thank our principals who are among the greatest educational leaders in the Commonwealth.
  • At its last meeting, the School Board approved a resolution on Principals Week, applauding the achievements and dedication of these administrators.
  • I too am proud of our principals for the job they do. They are outstanding public servants who run organizations larger than some small towns in America.
  • They create the culture and ensure safe environments for students to learn and thrive, and for school employees at every level to grow professionally.
  • Principals wear many hats. They must be great communicators; they are often arbitrators; they inspire creativity, innovation, and teamwork; and they must balance resources with needs.
  • They also plan and implement instructional programs and assess the educational needs of their students.
  • Most importantly, principals assemble a staff of high-qualified educators and support personnel who help carry out the school’s strategic plan.
  • No one goes it alone. Our principals will be the first to tell you they have a great team. Hats off to our principals and to their teams. We thank you for all you do.
