School Board Watch Blog: December 2015

In this edition of UnifiEd’s School Board Watch Blog, we’ll take a look at the agenda for the December 17th quarterly session of the Hamilton County School Board Meeting. The meeting will be held in the Hamilton County School Board Meeting Room at 3074 Hickory Valley Road and is set to begin at 5:30 PM. We will be there live tweeting. Follow along on Twitter: @UnifiEdHC, #HCSchools.

Hot Topics:

  • Donation Acceptance Requests: The Hamilton County Commission is requesting the approval of discretionary bond fund donations for the purchase of tech lab equipment for Harrison Elementary ($4,000), the purchase of an audio and speaker system for the Brainerd High School gymnasium ($7,200), and $100,000 going towards the completion of restroom facilities and concession area for the athletic complex at East Hamilton Middle High School. There has been some debate between School Board members and County Commissioners on appropriate spending of discretionary funds, especially with so many of our schools in need of facility updates and repairs.
  • Board Policy 5.702: Student Teachers: This policy establishes prerequisites for student teachers. The previous policy allowed for the principal and host teacher to approve student teacher placement in their classroom. The new policy allows only the principal to make the approval. The previous policy required the host teacher to either be tenure or have five years of experience. The new policy allows host teachers to have only three or more years of experience.
  • Coalition of Large Area School Systems (CLASS): Request of approval to continue Hamilton Countys membership in the Coalition of Large Area School Systems (CLASS) group and approval to pay membership dues of $37,500 to cover the professional services of Millsaps Gowan Government Relations. CLASS is a lobbying organization working on behalf of the largest school systems in TN.  
  • Opt-Out Movement: Heather DeGaetano will be speaking on the growing opt-out movement where parents are choosing to opt their children out of standardized testing mandated by the state. Heather is a Normal Park parent and has helped raise awareness throughout Hamilton County on why extensive testing is not the best option for grade school children.
