School safety is once again on the agenda for the Birmingham Board of Education.
School board members will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the district's administrative offices. Stay tuned to Birmingham Patch all week to hear what happened, or watch the meeting live either on Public Access Channel 17 or on the district's website.
The meeting will begin with a report from Birmingham Superintendent Daniel Nerad. On Tuesday, Nerad and Deputy Superintendent Paul DeAngelis will discuss the results from a month-long look at safety and security measures throughout the district, spurred by the December shooting at a Newtown, CT, elementary school.
Since the shooting, the district has started locking the front doors of all school buildings and hired security guards to man major school entrances and regulate visitors.
Following the superintendent's report will be a time for board comments and an opportunity for the public to speak.
Besides the school safety report, board members will also hear a report from Assistant Superintendent for Business Services Debbie Piesz, who will discuss the development of the district's 2013-14 budget, as well as the 2013-14 financial forecast.
- Routine personnel action, including new hires, resignations, leaves of absences and retirements.
- Approval of tuition enrollement rates for the 2013-14 school year.
- Proclaim the week of Feb. 10-16 as Principal's Week.
