Clayton BOE meets Monday

JONESBORO — The Clayton County Board of Education has a handful of action items on its regular meeting agenda for Monday.

The board is expected to take action on amendments to its Policy Series G regarding personnel matters. Members had a second reading of the amended policy Feb. 24, and a few members requested additional amendments.

The nine-member body will consider a resolution in response to the Georgia School Boards Association legislative priorities. Members also are expected to make appointments for their 2014 delegate and alternate to the GSBA.

Superintendent Luvenia Jackson plans to make recommendations for naming the district’s new fine arts magnet school. She and Fine Arts Director Monika Wiley have proposed Martha Ellen Stillwell School of the Arts, the namesake of a well-known fine arts educator who taught 30 years in Clayton County.

The superintendent also anticipates giving the board options with regard to making up days of school missed this year due to inclement wintry weather. The state board of education is granting districts more flexibility making up those days as well as rescheduling upcoming testing dates.

Lastly, officials said, a committee of three board members will return an update on how the board is proceeding in determining a superintendent search process. The panel includes board members Mary Baker and Jessie Goree and Vice Chairwoman Dr. Alieka Anderson.

The meeting is set to begin at 6 p.m., Monday at 1058 Fifth Ave. in Jonesboro. Meeting agendas are expected to be available through the district website at www.clayton.k12.ga.us.
