At its workshop on February 24th, the Blue Ridge School Board spent a lot of time trying to decide what it could do for the district’s most disadvantaged students. The discussion began when Board President Laurie Brown-Bonner asked her colleagues what should be done with some $3,000 remaining in the account of the Board’s Fundraising Committee.
That committee decided early on that at least half of its funds were to be allocated to scholarships for seniors. Last year the committee distributed $5,000 – more than half of the $8,000 or so earned at a golf tournament – to seniors. They had asked Superintendent Robert McTiernan to poll teachers for a list of needs that might be met by the remaining available funds.
Due to car trouble, this reporter arrived at the Mountain View meeting slightly late. At that time the school board was discussing the facilities use policy. The question was raised as to whether or not the policy applied to for profit or not for profit programs. The change was minor, so it was to remain a second reading.
Prior to this, a special award had been given to Dr. Plonski-Sezer for her support of the music program.
