Superintendent Tim McGinnis said there wasn’t anything on the agenda that couldn’t wait until March 27, its next meeting. He waited until March 10 to anything if anything important needed to be added and when nothing turned up, he called Chairman Mike Davis to recommend the meeting’s cancellation. He said there are several business items that can’t be dealt with until the General Assembly finishes its current session.
“We’re kind of in a wait-and-see mode with the General Assembly,” he said.
McGinnis was concerned with Senate Bill 1, which aims to eliminate CATS testing in favor of a national norm reference test. He said it had passed the Senate, but didn’t look like it would go anywhere in the House of Representatives. He said the district was also waiting on the budget to be finalized so that it could allocate budgets for each of the four schools’ site-based decision-making councils. He added, though, that he didn’t expect every important item to be resolved by March 27.
Principals’ reports will included in addition to business items at the March 27 meeting, he said.
