December 3, 2018 – NASD School Board Meeting
In a surprising power shift, the Board voted in new leadership. Linda Stubits was elected president over Mr. Treon on a vote of 5 to 4. Mr. Vasko was elected vice president over Mrs. Kalinoski on a vote of 5 to 4. The Board has appeared contentious and divided for a while now. This was just another example of it.
During the reorganization meeting the Board voted to approve Item 9: School Finance Items. No idea what this was about—the agenda didn’t include any details.
Student Government Association
Hope O’Connor reported that the Winter formal will be held on February 15th and that a dress drive is underway for students who need clothes for prom and other dances.
Career Institute of Technology
Mr. Vasko reported on this year’s housing project. The dry wall is schedule to be installed this month and students will begin the inside work in January.
Technology representatives made a case for a HPE 3 PAR Storage to handle anticipated needs for the next 5 years. Estimated cost will be $35,000.
Items 7 & 11 passed. Item 13, a proposal to adopt a policy on Child Abuse, was tabled until the December 10th meeting.
