Do you already
Computers at the ready, the Blue Ridge School Board launched itself part way into the paperless future at its meeting on February 11. Each board member and all the administrators – everybody at the table – had a laptop open throughout the meeting. There were a few paper copies of the agenda and supporting materials for observers, but the key players used only the computers to keep track of what was going on. Board President Priscinda Gaughan had forgotten her glasses, so she had to squint as she read each item on the agenda from her screen.
The February 11 meeting of the Montrose Area School Board was unusually well attended, at least in the beginning. A local Boy Scout troop was there; their attendance satisfied a service requirement, necessary for one of their badges. The boys were very well behaved throughout the proceeding. Also in attendance were officers from the new Montrose FBLA club, which was publicly recognized by Mr. Ognosky and the board. The club has apparently been something the district has been working toward for years, and a willingness to start it was one of the interview questions asked of applicants for a recent business education position. Twenty students expressed interest in membership, fifteen attended a recent competition at Keystone College, and three students placed. Chris Stevens took first place in a new competition, and is scheduled to attend states. Ashley Palmer and Cortney Griffiths came in third in their area of study. Also at the meeting were other club officers: Mike Stevens, Bruce Gowe, and Chelsea Hall. The students (and their advisor) all received certificates of recognition, and shook the hands of the board and administration around the table.
