School Board mum on violent incident

Sophomore still recovering at home

Editor’s note: Although this reporter does not typically cover King George local government, The Journal felt it was prudent to attend the Feb. 28 School Board meeting because it provided a window of opportunity for the elected members of the School Board to speak to its constituents on a recent report of school violence experienced by a sophomore that resulted in severe injuries and one student being charged with felony

Brown leaves SB on its own

Superintendent leaves the meeting; School Board goes  into closed session

The King George School Board this week added a closed session to its special budget meeting, which had been called for the sole purpose of discussion of proposals for School Board’s 2011-12 budget request.
The added closed session was “for the purpose of reviewing the investigation of the allegation of harassment by a School Board employee of a parent.”
The School Board had first added that topic to a closed session at last week’s meeting, which already had scheduled a closed session for “personnel.”

SB budget discussion includes ‘across the board’ raises

The King George School Board last week took a look at some preliminary budget figures.
Following that session, Dennis Paulsen gave his own take on the budget season.
“We are starting our budget session and it’s going to be another ugly budget session,” Paulsen said. “We can’t keep taking hits the way we take hits and expect to give the children the education they need. Once again we need to get the community support to help us get the funding required out of this county.”

Editor’s note: Linda Davis has served as coach for the King George Little League Challengers and is coordinator for King George Special Olympics. Her years of experience working with children in the special education program gives her a unique perspective on how the program is serving children with special needs. This is not a traditional news story — this is one woman’s perspective of one child’s situation.
