B-C-S Board Discusses Student Safety
Members of the Benton-Carroll-Salem Board of Education discussed a plan to secure classroom doors in an emergency situation at their regular meeting held on December 17th. The plan was brought forward by the School Resource Officer (SRO) Mr. Loren Welch. The plan involved using dock cleats and rope to secure classroom doors when there is a dangerous threat, such as an active shooter, in the building. The plan is relatively cost effective with the dock cleats costing about $3 each. Officer Welch is going to test his plan on a few doors before moving forward.
The Board also heard about the formation of the Ottawa County Crisis Team from Ms. Leigh Carroll. Ms. Carroll explained how the team, made up of guidance counselors and others from across the county, would be used in a crisis situation such as in the death of a student or staff member.
Board Members also approved the Treasurer's monthly financial reports. They also authorized the Treasurer to take some preliminary steps for the district being on the ballot for two renewal levies and an income tax. A final decision on the renewal levies and income tax will be on the January 2019 Board agenda.
In other business, the Board approved some personnel items, approved the Credit Flexibility policy and regulation, and accepted, with gratitude, the following donations:
- Approx. $100.00 - From Anonymous to be used for any student at R.C. Waters Elementary School who has reached the charge limit and is unable to charge another meal, until the $100.00 is exhausted.
- $50.00 - From Anonymous to benefit a specific student meal account.
- $1,000.00 - From Anonymous to be dispersed evenly among all B-C-S reduced status meal accounts. $500.00 will be dispersed on December 7, 2018, and the remaining $500.00 will be dispersed at the start of the 2019-2020 school year.
- $1,000.00 - From the “One for the Ladies Golf Outing” and the Oak Harbor Golf Club to be used to help B-C-S Middle School students and families for Christmas.
