School Board hosts conversation on school safety
Last Upgraded: January 23, 2019 at 1:05 pm
The Colleton County School District is preparing a “Community Discussion” about school safety.
Colleton County School Superintendent Dr. Franklin Foster told school board members at the Jan. 15 conference that the neighborhood conversation, entitled “Security in our Schools,” will be held Feb. 5 at 6 p.m. at Colleton Middle School. The event is an opportunity for students, moms and dads, district employees and neighborhood members to share ideas on how to improve school safety.
The general public is encouraged to participate in.
Assistant Superintendent Dr. Juliet White reminded board members that the annual stakeholders meeting will be held Jan. 29 at 6 p.m. at Colleton County High School. School officials will update the stakeholders on the district’s efforts to meet the goals of the district’s tactical strategy and get their input on those efforts.
Foster notified the board that the school district is still dealing with the details of the building contract released to Mitchell Building Company in December. Mitchell was granted the agreement to deal with the renovation of the former Forest Circle Intermediate school. The former school structure is to be refurbished to provide a centralized administrative office, along with classroom space for the district’s Adult Education and Option School operations.
In other service:
– Tim Mabry was elected chairman of the Colleton County School Board and Patricia Simmons was chosen vice-chairman. They will serve in those posts for one year.
Mabry also provided his fellow board members a legal update on education concerns that might see action throughout this legislative session.
– The school district commemorated School Board Member Appreciation Month throughout the session with each board member getting a book containing photographs of school occasions and programs carried out at each of the district’s schools throughout the last school year.
Members likewise signed a School Board Member Appreciation Month poster that will be hung in the board conference room.
