School Board Communications

The School Board met on Monday, February 11, 2013 for their regular monthly meeting.

February is School Board Appreciation month.  The theme this year is School Boards Speak Out for Public Schools which reflects the efforts of thousands of men and women who advocate and shape the direction of our state’s public schools.   Dr.  Eberhardt stated that “Madison has the best School Board in the Commonwealth.” He further stated “their love for learning, and concern and caring for students, staff and community, drives board members’ desire to lead so students can achieve.”

Mr. Ernie Hoch, County Administrator, discussed the County’s efforts to develop an entrance into the Shenandoah National Park from within the county.  He is requesting the School Board and others to sign a resolution of support.

Presented to the Board as Information

The math and science textbook adoption committees have been reviewing textbooks.   Math grades K-5 and Science grades 3-12.  Textbooks are available for review at the School Board office until March 11, 2013, at which time the selected textbooks will be presented to the School Board for approval.

The following items were approved by the Board:

  • Approved the 2013-2014 MCPS Budget.  The budget is based on the following:   It includes the Governor’s recommended 2% salary increase (Governor’s increase only covers SOQ funded positions – ours includes ALL employees); a $200,000 decrease due to the federal Ed Job funds that have dried up; full health care coverage of the proposed increase, and several vacant positions.
