The North Bend Central Board of Education met May 10, reviewed the past year and made plans for the upcoming summer and the 2010-2011 school year.

The school year finished with and enrollment of 485 students in prekindergarten to 12th grade, up 15 students from the previous year.

Though there was no new information on Prague’s reorganization, it was anticipated that 16 new students will come from the Prague area via the land that has already freeheld into NBCPS. Seven students have already optioned into North Bend and one was already attending NBC. At this time four new elementary and four new secondary students are anticipated. If there is a large number of students from the Prague area, a change in bus routes may be necessary.

Carol Murray will provide summer school for students needing skill development or credit recovery. Students needing credit recovery will be required to pass the course using the Odysseyware.

The NBC Foundation Board approved four teacher grants for this summer: Summer Classic Books Reading Program; tuition assistance to summer academic programs; purchase of children’s literature for Title I summer reading program; material and training for two teachers to attend Destination ImagiNation program.

The pressbox on the athletic field was analyzed by Jim Lange from Lange Structural group and found to be in good condition with the exception of one floor joist that will be replaced this summer.

It was decided to replace a small area of flooring in the Commons Area at the elementary school. The area will be stripped and reinstalled with a new type of epoxy to see if this will solve the problems encountered

Others items covered:
• NBC will offer distance learning physics classes to Scribner-Snyder.
• New mathematics standards were adopted
• A policy prohibiting dating violence, staff training to recognize such and age-appropriate instructions for students about such was adopted.
