Wednesday, October 14, 2009

During the recent meeting of the Clay Community School Board of Trustees, the board unanimously approved the following:

* Jobs for America's Graduates Program, a program for at-risk high school juniors and seniors at Northview High School to receive basic skill assessment and remediation to complete their high school diploma or GED as well as gain employability skills. The program is funded by Workforce Development Grants and continuation of the program is contingent to the grant funding. Clay Community Schools will be contributing a computer and classroom space,

* An after-school counseling program for secondary level students from NHS and Clay City Jr./Sr. High School, which will be held on Wednesdays for two-hours at Cumberland Academy. The program will target discipline problems and for students in need of therapeutic counseling. The program is funded through the Safe and Drug-Free Grant. The extension of the program is based on grant funding,

* Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology will be operating the EMERGE Program out of NHS. The program will involve high ability ninth-grade female students interested in a career in engineering or technology. The program will continue to operate as long as funding is provided by Rose-Hulman or through grants. There is no cost to the corporation or the student's families, and

* Board member comments will now be at the end of the meeting, before personnel items or future agenda items are discussed.
