City School Board To Consider 'No Hungry Kids Act'

Originally published: 2012-12-11 10:21:42
Last modified: 2012-12-11 10:24:10

The Greeneville Board of Education will meet at noon on Thursday, Dec. 13, in the Professional Learning Center at the Kathryn W. Leonard Administrative Office.

The board will consider approving adoption of several resolutions.

They will consider backing H.R. 6418, the No Hungry Kids Act, which would nullify the rule published by the U.S. Department of Agriculture on Jan. 26, 2012, establishing nutrition standards for school lunch and breakfast programs.

The bill is co-sponsored by U.S. Rep. Phil Roe, R-1st, of Johnson City.

Also, the board will consider approving a proposal to forgo AdvancEd Accreditation (formally Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, or SACS).

Dr. Linda Stroud, director of city schools, said that area schools have also dropped the accreditation, which costs the accreditated schools membership dues.

"It has no impact today on admission for college and university applications for our students," Stroud said.

The board will also consider once again backing the Tennessee School Boards Association's (TSBA) position concerning appointed director of schools, publicly funded vouchers and charter schools.

TSBA supports the appointment of the director of schools by the board of education and opposes any measure to revert to the process of electing superintendents.

TSBA opposes any legislation to create a voucher program that would divert money intended for public education to private schools.

TSBA opposes any additional charter school legislation.

In another matter, the board will also consider supporting a resolution which seeks to stop sequestration, which calls for an 8.2 percent cut to federal programs, including education.

Sequestration is scheduled to become effective January 2013 unless the president and the Congress reach agreement on an alternative. Education cuts would not happen until next fiscal school year.

Other "action agenda" items will be considered. They are:

* accepting October and November financial statements;

* approving a budget amendment; and

* approving a revised five-year plan from the board goals.

The board will hear special recognition for Greeneville High School Advanced Placement (AP) Honor Roll, Tusculum View Elementary as a Reward School, Greeneville Middle School's SPARK Grant, and spelling bee winners.

Board members will also hear a report on the system Science Fair.
