Education, politics and observations from Sanford

On the school board agenda

The Lee County Board of Education will meet 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Lee County Government Center on Hillcrest Drive. The agenda for the meeting can be viewed here.

About a dozen people are signed up to talk about the AIG (academically and intellectually gifted) program. I’m in the process of contacting some of those people to try to get some more specifics. My best guess is it’s all related to potential cuts AIG could face because of this year’s budget crisis Lee County Schools is facing. Hopefully I will have more information about that soon.

Also on the agenda:

  • A report from J. Glenn Edwards Elementary Principal Bonnie Almond about the effectiveness of implementing a uniform policy at the school this year.
  • A report from Superintendent Jeff Moss with budget updates as the N.C. House of Representatives is expected to unveil more proposals this week.
  • Approval of the school board’s 2009-10 calendar of events, which starts in July.
