Do you already
The business meeting of the Blue Ridge School Board got off to a late start on September 13. The unusually large crowd waited nearly a half hour for Board members to return from an executive session that Board President Alan Hall said was for personnel and legal purposes, without further elaboration.
Once the meeting did get under way, everyone seemed upbeat with the start of the new school year already behind them. Middle School Principal Matthew Nebzydoski described the opening as “excellent;” not to be outdone, High School Principal Scott Jeffery said it was “wonderful.” And brand-new Superintendent Robert McTiernan simply said “thanks for the warm and professional welcome.”
Superintendent Bronson Stone gave the Susquehanna Community School Board some good news at their September 15 meeting. The district received its annual test score “report card” from the state department of education, with some outstanding results. In reading, three of the seven grades tested achieved marks above the state average. In math, six of the seven grades were above the state average, and in science, all three of the grades tested scored above the state average. And, eleventh grade test scores in writing exceeded the state average. One area, fifth grade writing, needs improvement, Mr. Stone said, but the faculty has been hard at work to improve those scores. The detailed results of the “report card” are posted on the district's website.
