The Coffee County Board of Education received the Alabama Association of School Board’s President’s Award for the 2018-2019 year at its regularly scheduled meeting on Dec. 12.
AASB District 3 Director Dr. Greg Price presented the board with the award.
“Out of 138 public schools in Alabama, only 49 receive this distinction for the past year,” Price said. “To earn the President’s Award, a board must have 60 percent or more of its members attend at least three AASB conferences and all of its members meet the state-mandated training requirements. The award recognizes school boards who have demonstrated outstanding commitment to developing their boardsmanship and leadership skills.”
In other business, the board approved the bids for two surplus school buses.
The board also approved the 2020 meeting schedule for the CCBOE and the 2020 textbook committee at the meeting.
The following personnel actions were approved at the meeting:
Lisa Murphy, reading specialist at New Brockton Elementary School;
Randy Hartley, bus driver for Zion Chapel Schools; and,
Helena Johnson-Spikes, bus driver for New Brockton Schools.
The next Coffee County Board of Education meeting will be Feb. 6, 2020, at 5:30 p.m. at the central office in Elba. The meeting is open to the public.
