The Board of Education met in a study session prior to the regular Board Meeting on Tuesday, December 8. Meetings were held at the district office in American Fork. The purpose of the study session was to review the growth projections for the next five years and to review feedback from the boundary meetings that have been held. The boundary options were presented during last month's Board Meeting.
The regular meeting began with a special presentation by Kimberly James, President of the Alpine Education Support Professionals. The AESP sponsored a “Teddy Bear Drive” and presented over 10,000 teddy bears to emergency service workers throughout Alpine School District. They will use the bears to comfort children in times of crisis. Thank you to the many people that supported this cause. It was an impressive presentation.
There were three action items for the evening. The first was the re-appointment of Business Administrator Robert W. Smith. Members of the Board expressed appreciation for the outstanding job he does. The second action item was the approval of the Consolidated Utah Student Achievement Plan (CUSAP). The final action item was the approval of the Peanut and Severe Food Allergy Policy (attached).
David Smith, ASD Director of Research and Evaluation, gave an impressive report on both ACT test results as well as Advanced Placement programs in Alpine School District.
The next Board Meeting will be held on January 12 at the District Office.
