A report on Board action
Cumberland County Board of Education 
Regular Meeting

November 15, 2012 


 

Measurable Objectives for Alternative Schools Approved 
The Board approved the local options for Fuller Performance Learning Center, Ramsey Street High School, and Pauline Jones Middle School. Local options are measures the school will use that will help determine growth by the end of the 2012-2013 school year. According to North Carolina State Board of Education Policy GCS-C-013, the accountability model for alternative schools is based on achievement and the degree of success that the school has in meeting certain objectives contained in its school improvement plan.

Board Policy Updates Get Approval 
The Board approved updated fiscal- and facility-related policies. The updated graduation requirements policy also received approval. The updates will be accessible via the CCS’ Website in the coming weeks.

Administrative Recommendations Approved

Principals:

La’Shanda Carver-Moore, Principal, Westover Middle School

Pamela Adams, Principal, Massey Hill Classical High School

Recognitions 
Student government leaders Chloe Griffin from Terry Sanford High School and Lindsay Edge from Cape Fear High School served as the ex-officio members of the Cumberland County Board of Education during the November 15 meeting. Ex-officio members are given the opportunity to make comments, ask questions, and give input on any topic brought before the Board.

Betty Musselwhite, the associate superintendent of School Support, recognized two CCS’ teachers who recently completed the rigorous process of submitting their National Board Certification portfolios. Donna Mims, the executive director of Professional Development, joined Musselwhite in presenting Judith Hawk from Jack Britt High School and Michele Raymes from Mac Williams Middle School a $500 stipend from the Cumberland County Board of Education.

Musselwhite also introduced October’s Amazing Acts of Character honorees Julz Wright from Gallberry Farm Elementary, Nash Burke from Gray’s Creek Middle School, and Christine Craib from Reid Ross Classical High School. The three honorees, chosen from individual school nominations for displaying ‘acts of good character,’ were also recognized by the Board.
