Bullyproofing schools to be addressed Monday night


From bullyproofing schools to presenting an update on the search for a new superintendent of schools, the Moffat County Board of Education will address a variety of issues Monday night at its monthly meeting.

"We really have a full agenda Monday," Interim-Superintendent Pete Bergmann said.

The first reading of the district's bullyproofing policy falls in line with a state mandate that was passed down a year ago.

"This policy is mandated by state law from the 2001 State Legislature," he said. "Every district must have a policy. It's good that proactive steps are being taken to maintain a bullyproof environment in our schools."

First reading of policies regarding staff use of district technology and electronic mail will also be read.

In other business, board member John Kinkaid and personnel supervisor Bruce Gregg will give an update on the superintendent search.

After the public meeting held Jan. 17 to discuss the search, 19 application packets were sent to people who expressed interest in the position.

The deadline for applications is Feb. 15, at which time a committee will begin a screening process on applicants.

The meeting will also feature the National Anthem, which will be sung by the Moffat County High School Choir.

The choir's performance is part of the school spotlight, which this month recognizes MCHS.

MCHS principal Jane Krogman said in addition to the choir's performance, the sponsors of four groups at the high school will give brief presentations. They include:

Jeane Callahan who sponsors the high school business club

Katy Gray who conducts an archeology dig with students

Cindy Morris who sponsors the Youth United Way

Craig Conrad who teaches wood shop at Moffat County High School

In other business:

MCHS principal Jane Krogman will give a report on Moffat County Alternative School

A motion will be made to select two school board members for a negotiating team to discuss salary increases and other financial issues with Moffat County School staff

Reports will be given from principals at each school building on what is being done to maintain security in Moffat County Schools
