Education, politics and observations from Sanford

Some school board notes

There were a few odds and ends that did not make it into today’s Herald from last night’s Lee County Board of Education meeting.

Most notably, Superintendent Jeff Moss said the district must return an additional $267,100 because of more state budget cuts from Gov. Bev Perdue. Those reductions will come from Lee County Schools’ non-instructional support line, Moss said.

Lee County Health Director Howard Surface also gave an update on the H1N1 virus, or swine flu. So far, there have been no reported cases in the county. He said one of the biggest concerns is that a more potent version of the virus will show up in time for the fall/winter flu season. The Lee County Board of Health has established a committee to examine how to respond to the virus, Surface said.

The demolition of the foreign language building at Lee County High School also is going forward. Maintenance and Facilities Director Jerry Pittman said clearance has been given for asbestos removal, and the building should be gone by middle or end of next week.

The school board also approved a tweaked superintendent evaluation policy. The policy states that board members will evaluate the superintendent formally and informally throughout the year.
