The Metro Board of Education will meet in regular session on Thursday, September 17 at 6 p.m. at the Lynchburg Elementary School (LES) Cafeteria.

In new business, the board will consider several personnel issues. It will consider tenure for two teachers: Belinda Smith and Amber Neal and also be informed of the immediate resignation of two teachers: Special Education Teacher Eric M. Davis and LES Art Teacher Whitney Ferris.

The LES Library will present a list of materials for “weeding out” … or items currently in library inventory that will be re-allocated to classrooms. The list includes books, science equipment, anatomical models, CDs, and other items. LES Librarian Sarah Gammon submitted the list.

Other new business items include a proposal to create a MCHS Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) program at the high school as well as removing several early release dates (9/24, 10/8, 11/19, and 12/10) from the school calendar.
