School Board to Meet Tonight

Daniel Prince

Recommendation to end mask mandate expected

The Union County Board of School Trustees will be meeting in Room 600 of the Union County Career and Technology Center tonight at 6:30. They will open the meeting with an executive session to discuss contractual and personnel matters.

Once back in open session, board members will share highlights from their annual convention. Superintendent Joey Haney will give updates to the board, which will likely include the district’s recommendation regarding the mask mandate. When it was put into place in January, the plan was to evaluate the mandate’s effectiveness and the status of the virus at this month’s meeting and decide whether or not to continue the mandate or to end it. The board will receive the monthly budget report.

Kathy Taylor will update the board on Jonesville Elementary-Middle School; Jennifer Stepp will update the board on the Achievement Academy; and Crystal Robinson-Bryant will give an update on the Reading Recovery Program. Eric Childers will present the 2022-2023 school calendar for first reading. The board will be asked to approve three overnight field trips, as well as the personnel report. After that, the meeting will adjourn.
