Administrative Reports (17-20):
Director’s Report. Mr. Spangler noted to the board that the second six weeks has just finished up and students are beginning the third six weeks today. He also reminded the board about the rescheduled trip to Nicolas County, West Virginia on December 5, 2016.
Mr. Spangler informed the board that Mr. Huffman had traveled to the Richmond and D.C. areas to look at different ventilation systems. Mr. Huffman, who was in the audience of the meeting, discussed with the board that he was trying to find a ventilation system that is as quiet as possible and still does what he wants it to do in terms of performance. One thing he noted in observing these other systems is that installation is very important in order for a system to work properly.
Dual Enrollment. Mr. Spangler presented the board with a dual enrollment report listing numbers from last year and this year. Mr. Spangler mentioned that we have 79 students enrolled in dual enrollment classes this year. He also said that moving forward next year some changes will need to be made regarding what classes are offered due to their transferability to the college level.
