By Sherry Matney

The Centerville Independent School District Board of Trustees held a regular meeting on August 30, 2010 in the CHS library. All board members were present with the exception of Tommy Neyland.

Dan Parker, Junior-Senior High School Principal, reported the following enrollment figures: 7th grade – 66; 8th grade – 76; 9th grade 47; 10th grade – 65; 11th grade – 58; 12th grade – 37. There are 201 students in grades 9-12 and 142 in grades 7 and 8, for a total of 343 students.

Jason Jeitz, Elementary Principal, reported the following enrollment figures: PreK – 13; K – 50; 1st grade – 43; 2nd grade – 42; 3rd grade – 50; 4th grade – 61; 5th grade – 51; and 6th grade – 44. The total number of students on the Elementary campus is 354.

Total district enrollment as of August 27 is 697 which is 5 students less than last year at this time.

Superintendent Cathy Nichols gave a brief report on the Performance Based Monitoring. Information was received on Friday, August 27; however, intervention stages have not been assigned as of this time. Scores for Limited English Proficient students and Special Education Students in science were below expectations of the district. Additionally, the number of students receiving special education services was discussed.

Nichols reviewed Board Policy Update 88. Most of the amendments were a result of rule changes to the Administrative Code due to action by the 81st Legislature. Topics such as curriculum requirements, student assessment, retention & promotion, and performance appraisals were discussed. Changes also included employees’ use of electronic media and notification requirements in the event of a security breach of electronic data. The policy was approved.

An operating budget for 2010-2011 for $6,185,997 and a lunchroom budget for $246,642 were adopted. A tax rate of $1.04 was approved for the 2010-11 school year.

Nichols presented request for a student transfer. The transfer was denied because the student did not meet admission criteria based on Board Policy FDA.

In other business minutes from the August 10, 2010, meeting was approved as read and bills for August were approved.
