A rare Tuesday meeting of the Harford County Board of Education will feature approval of promotions and appointments for next year, and a proclamation thanking the Board’s student representative for his year of service. Action items include approval of a community-sponsored fence for the stadium at Harford Technical High School.
Due to the Memorial Day holiday, Board members will meet on Tuesday, rather than the usual Monday evening, to approve promotions and appointments that will be recommended at the meeting by Superintendent Robert M. Tomback.
A series of planned recognitions by the Board include a resolution thanking Student Representative Panashe I. Mutombo for his year of board service and wishing him well following his upcoming graduation from Patterson Mill High School.
Other planned recognitions include the students who served on the 2013 Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council and this school year’s Destination Imagination Global Tournament qualifiers. Ring Factory Elementary School parent Carol Vach will also be recognized, as a 2013 semifinalist for the Maryland Parent Involvement Matters Award. Finally, Jim Jewell, assistant superintendent for Business Services, and his staff will be congratulated for earning a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA).
On the consent agenda, Board members will approve a $7,300 fence purchase and installation at Harford Technical High School to be funded by the school’s booster club and the Churchville Rec Council. The fence is planned to close off the bleachers at Cobra Stadium, limiting the potential risk of trespassers under the bleachers and providing a safe area to store athletic equipment.
Also on the consent agenda, Board members will approve the April Personnel Report, listing the employees who have either left the system or been placed on leaves of absence, along with those who are newly employed. Members of the board-sponsored citizen advisory committees will be appointed for next year, with thanks offered to the committees’ departing members.
As usual, the meeting will conclude with a report by Superintendent Tomback.
The May 28th meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the A. A. Roberty Building in Bel Air. A public comment period is set for 6:55 p.m. The published meeting agenda appears below. Please note that published agendas are subject to change.
