School board to meet tonight

Published 12:00 am Tuesday, August 9, 2005

Prioritizing the new fiscal year’s supplemental budget will take priority at the Suffolk School Board’s work session at 4:30 p.m. Thursday.

The work session will be followed by the regular meeting at 7 p.m.. Both meetings are being held in the second floor of the Municipal Building, 411 Market St.

The board adopted an $8.6 million supplemental budget – a list of &uot;extras&uot; the school system needs to raise Suffolk Public Schools to a new level – last spring. The document will be used to plan future school budget requests made to the Suffolk City Council.

At the board’s annual retreat

last month, School Superintendent Dr. Milton Liverman asked board members to spend time prioritizing the items on the list.

Also, the board will hear reports on the middle school renovations and Creekside Elementary construction projects, the updated status of Standards of Learning accreditation throughout Suffolk’s schools, and a report from the Disability Awareness Committee.

Aside from the Thursday meeting, convocation for Suffolk Public School employees for the upcoming year is scheduled for August 25 for secondary and elementary instructional personnel, and for August 30 for support personnel.

Both events will be held at King’s Fork High School.
