District approves next year’s calendar, talks of extending school year in future
Talk of implementing exit interviews, the hiring of Director of Secondary Education Services Tina Ross, a discussion of the 2012-2013 budget and approval of the 2013-2014 school calendar highlighted the latest Newton Community School District Board of Education meeting, which featured absences by board member Dennis Combs and Superintendent Steve McDermott.
Several parents, with students who live in the Newton district, turned in forms to have their children take classes in other districts as a part of the Open Enrollment Act. Board Members Don Poynter and Donna Cook spurred a discussion on the district implementing exit interviews and or surveys for students and parents who choose to leave the district.
“That might be some good information for us,” Cook said.
