Principal reviews, as well as the addition of three programs for students, are among the items set for this week's Jay Public School Board of Education meeting.
The meeting, set for 7 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 15, was moved from the regular date of Feb. 8. It takes place in the school administration building 821 North Main, Jay.
During an executive session, board members will conduct evaluations on the following administrators: Jan Fasano, elementary principal, Marvin Stockton, upper elementary principal, Arlis Henegar, middle school principal, James Bryant, high school principal, Cassie Youngblood, elementary assistant principal, and Brenda Stewart, special education director.
During the open session, board members will return to "vote to employ, or table employment" for the administrators for the upcoming school year.
A note on the agenda states the administrators are "proposed for renewal as administrators, but not in any particular position. Administrative assignments may change based upon the specific needs of the district."
In other employment issues, the board will also consider several Grand Head Start positions, as well as an evaluation of Superintendent Kenneth Bridges. No vote is scheduled to take place on Bridges' position.
Board members will hear from representatives from community organizations concerning the establishment of those programs within the Jay School System.
Those scheduled to make presentations to the board include John Morrow, project director for Oklahoma Gear Up, a representative from Grove Rotary Club concerning the Choices program for eighth graders, and a representative from DCCSAN [Delaware County Children's Special Advocacy Network] for the Play It Safe Curriculum.
