School Board approves additional school assignments

The King George School Board last week approved and released the names of the instructional leaders, department chairmen, class sponsors and club/activity advisors at two more of the division’s five schools for the new school year which started last month. The personnel action took place at a meeting on Oct. 10.
The assignments were made for King George High School and Potomac Elementary School, with assignments previously approved for the other three schools on Sept. 24 and reported in our Oct. 3 issue.

School Board’s Hunter Field quandary

Once again, the King George School Board is currently unable to come to agreement on transferring unused property over to county ownership. The dispute harkens back to old antipathies toward Supervisors that many hoped had been set aside by the current School Board.

This time, Hunter Field is the topic of discussion, though it could just as easily be the former middle school building which was ceremoniously closed down in June 2009.

Three members were clearly in favor of transferring the deed, but that didn’t become clear until near the end of a lengthy and contentious discussion prompted primarily by questions and objections by School Board member John Davis. 

At last week’s meeting on Oct. 10, Chairman Mike Rose said he wanted to talk about it since a new stadium has recently been completed. “We said when the new stadium was built, we were going to turn Hunter Field over to Parks &Rec.,” Rose said, but appeared to waver on that opinion as the discussion ensued.

That came with last week’s announcement from the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) that 93 percent of Virginia schools met state standards as a result of Standards of Learning (SOL) test results during the 2011-12 school year.

VIRGINIA PRESCHOOL INITIATIVE

The School Board voted to approve the establishment of two classes of pre-school under the Virginia Preschool Initiative beginning this fall. Supervisor of Special Education Ann Bueche and Coordinator of Mandated Services & Preschool Pari Paluszak presented the initiative, saying that no additional funding was needed for the program other than to approve and request an appropriation by the Board of Supervisors for $29,822 coming through available state funding.
