Board of Ed Agenda for Sept. 13

The Board of Education will be meeting tomorrow night (7:30 p.m., Ed Center), and here are a few highlights from the agenda:

We'll have several presentations, including the official Opening of School Report with attendance figures. (Here's a hint: good thing we're expanding some buildings!).

We'll get a report on maintenance projects completed over the summer, and an update from our architects and engineer on referendum projects.

We'll review the new organization chart for the IT (formerly MIS) department.

The Board will have the first reading of revisions to Policy 7250 (School and Facility Names), which you can read attached to the agenda (click here).

We're approving the enrollment of a couple of tuition students: one at the high school and one at Hawes and, yes, they will be paying tuition. I don't know if I'm allowed to discuss their reasons for attending Ridgewood schools (it's probably confidential student info), but their enrollment was approved by the building principals and Dr. Fishbein.

Various changes of assignment, appointments, leave of absence, etc.

The Board will acknowledge the total donations from various groups and individuals over the 2009-10 school year.

Hmm...doesn't sound like too late a meeting, does it? We'll see! You are welcome to attend -- there are seats for everyone! Or you can watch live on Cablevision Channel 77 or see the webcast at click here. (Webcast can be viewed live or go to the website any time to view archived webcasts!).
