Michigan's School of Choice program and several budget amendments are on the agenda for the Birmingham Board of Education Tuesday night.
The school board will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the district's administrative offices on West Merrill.
Stay tuned to Birmingham Patch to hear what happened, or watch the meeting live either on Public Access Channel 17 or at the district's website.
- District spokeswoman Marcia Wilkinson will be providing the school board with an update on the CECAC program, or Community Education Through Collaboration and Communication.
- Debbie Piesz, assistant superintendent for business services, will be presenting several budget amendments for 2012-13. The school board will vote to approve those resolutions later in the meeting.
On Tuesday, school board members will consider making Birmingham Public Schools part of Michigan's Schools of Choice program on a limited basis — namely, the district is looking to open up six 11th grader spots in the Alternative Education Program.
Up til this point, Birmingham has not participated in the Schools of Choice program, which opens up enrollment to nonresident students in Oakland County.
Other resolutions include:
- Routine personnel action, including new hires, resignations, leaves of absence and retirements.
- Resolution stating the district has complied with seven of eight best practices as identified in the State School Aid Act.
- Approving several budget amendments for 2012-13. The budget is typically amended at mid-year and at the end of the fiscal year to reflect the current status of revenues and expenditures.
- Awarding a contract for the renovations of the Birmingham Conference Center driveway. The district's administrative offices are moving to the conference center in June.
- Approval of attendance at the Federal Relations Network Conference by Geri Rinschler.
