The Natchitoches parish School Board recognized those teacher nominated for Teacher of the Year in Natchitoches Parish at its meeting May 10.
“It’s an honor and a privilege to have these great, dedicated teachers in our system,” said Superintendent Dale Skinner.
An announcement was made that the school board will start providing copies of a balanced budget sheet to the public at its monthly meetings (SEE DOCUMENT BELOW).
In other business, two items, added to the agenda after Tuesday’s committee meeting, caused concern for Board Member Ralph Wilson. However, affirmative votes from the other board members passed both items, which will change student attendance for several schools.
Item #1: Approve students from Natchez area that have been attending Provencal Elementary and Jr. High (approximately 83 students) to begin attending Cloutierville Elementary and Jr. High for the 2018-2019 school year.
Item #2: Approve students who live in the following areas (Airport Road, Fairgrounds Road, South Town Community, Fish Hatchery Road and LA Hwy. 494) to enroll into the City schools.
Ralph Wilson asked that the approval of these items be put off until next month so the board members would have more time to discuss them. However, Skinner said they couldn’t wait until next month and it’s the best solution they’ve come up with at this time.
Other agenda items included:
Adopt other authorized millage rates and taxes for 2018
Take appropriate action on bids for HVAC and electrical upgrades to Goldonna Jr./Sr. High School
Add consolidated #6 bond renewal (7 mil) set to expire EOY 2019 and consolidated #7 (7 mil) set to expire EOY 2020 to the General Election ballot for Dec. 8
