The Pitt County Board of Education is scheduled to meet for the first time in more than a month on Monday for a work session at the Pitt County Office Complex.
Winter weather canceled January’s regular board meeting and Monday will mark the first formal meeting of 2018.
The board plans to discuss and review presentations concerning student assignment, dress code policies, school bus cameras and more.
The work session is set to take place at 11 a.m. on the third floor of 1717 W. Fifth St. The agenda features 10 items; no action can be taken in work sessions.
According to the agenda, a comprehensive financial report from 2016-17 will be presented to the board following opening remarks by new chairwoman Mildred Council.
There also will be a Capital Improvement Plan presented by Section Coordinator Aaron Errickson as well as a presentation concerning teacher contracts in July 2018 and beyond.
Kay Weathington, director of student services, will lead discussion on Policy 4150, which concerns student assignment, as well as the open enrollment process.
The meeting also will feature a presentation by Superintendent Ethan Lenker on Policy 4316, which details the county’s dress code policy, the agenda says.
In addition to several policy discussions, Council will present a draft statement affirming the need for bus cameras. The board has had long-standing, unanimous support of making new bus cameras, both interior and exterior, a priority.
