C-CISD Board regular monthly meeting held


Contributing Reporter

CORRIGAN -- Corrigan-Camden Independent School district (CCISD) board held their regular monthly meeting at 7 p.m. September 10 in the board room at the school. Steve Willson chaired the meeting, two tracts of land in the CCISD area were pro-posed for purchase through delinquent tax debt, they were Tract 50, J.W. Scates Survey, Abstract 69, Acct. #10069005000, and Cause #T11-324 and Tract 18, J. Parrish Survey, Abstract 783, Acct #10783002000, Cause# T10-033; the bid amounts on both were less than the usu-ally required 10 percent and the board members asked that additional information be ob-tained regarding the offered bid amounts, no action was taken. A resolution asking the Polk County Commissioner’s Court approval for disburse-ment of the available funds from the Permanent School Fund for specific use items was passed and will be pre-sented to the court jointly with similar requests from the other Polk County school dis-tricts. A review of the School Health and Related Services (SHARS) program, which re-imburses schools based on ac-tual costs for medical services provided, and the reporting formula involved, requires that all reports are furnished on time for reimbursement. Curriculum Director Sher-ry Hughes asked the board to approve the 2012-13 NCLB Consolidated Federal Grant Application/Notice of Grant Award, as presented, because the money has been funded and this approval will allow the district to draw from the grant. Ms. Hughes reviewed the End of Coarse (EOC) require-ments for graduation for tenth graders and below; the current eleventh and twelfth graders have already taken tests re-quired for their academic level. These new tests, and passing levels, are still being formulat-ed, and it appears there is great interest statewide to modify, or perhaps redo the program, but for now the guidelines pre-sented are the models to work from. Superintendent Tom Bow-man reminded the board about upcoming statewide school board/superintendent’s meet-ings in two weeks, asking which members would be go-ing, There are many issues on the agendas and a good place to network for CCISD’ posi-tions. In other actions, bills were approved for payment; min-utes from three August meet-ings approved and financial re-ports were reviewed. With no further business the meeting adjourned at 7:40 p.m.
