Cloverdale School Board approves 2021 budget

Tuesday, September 15, 2020

CLOVERDALE -- The Cloverdale School Board had only a few non-regular items on its agenda Monday evening. One of them was to approve the budget for 2021.

Superintendent Greg Linton briefly noted that the corporation had fulfilled statutory requirements for advertising the budget, as well as holding a public hearing, which was on Aug. 24.

The board approved the budget, which also included capital projects and school bus replacement.

The board also approved changes reflecting that student test scores will not be factors in teacher evaluations. Linton noted this follows recent legislation from state lawmakers. He was referring to House Bill 1002, which permanently decoupled test scores from teacher evaluations.

Saying that “It’s starting each day to feel a little bit more normal,” Linton thanked teachers, administration and support staff for their work with the beginning of school during his time for final comments.

The board also approved the following personnel report:

• Resignation: Paul Fagin - bus driver;

• Employment: Amber Caulkins - bus aide; Cindy Peterson - substitute bus driver; Lindsey Peck - CES/CMS cafeteria (part-time); Nancy Collins - CMS homebound teacher; and Laura Blocker - CES/CMS cafeteria (part-time);

• Coaching:

- Hire: Kathy Moore - seventh and eighth-grade volleyball coach;

- Volunteer: Sandi Price - seventh and eighth-grade assistant volleyball coach; Jerod Welton - CMS volunteer co-ed cross country coach; and Tiffany Clark - CMS volunteer co-ed cross country coach.

Board member JaceAnn Troutt was not in attendance.

The next regular meeting of the Cloverdale School Board is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 12 at 7 p.m. at the Arthur L. Johnson Administration Office near Cloverdale High School.
