January Meeting of the Board of Education

Board Meeting - January 2022

Superintendent's Report: 1/24/2022

  • We were glad to welcome our students and staff back in-person today after a week of remote learning. Our student absenteeism was just under 12% today (1/24/22). That’s higher than a normal day, but considering the pandemic is surging and it’s flu season, that’s not entirely surprising. Our staff absenteeism improved today. Had we have been in-person last week, more than 60 employees would not have been able to work in-person due to a COVID diagnosis or quarantine. Today, we had 13 staff members out for COVID-related reasons.

  • Last year, the Muscle Shoals Education Foundation invested $90,595.00 into our schools and classroom. It’s the highest amount ever! We certainly appreciate all stakeholders who contribute to MSEF, especially if you are a monthly donor.

  • Congratulations to Tiffany Stonecipher, teacher at Muscle Shoals Career Academy, for having achieved National Board Certification. A couple of others renewed their national board certification - Deidra Brewer and Deirdre Nelson.

  • Congratulations to Heather Medlin, a finalist for the Choral Music Educators Award at the Alabama Music Educators Conference this past weekend.

  • Lilly Goodwin represented MSHS as one of 25 girls and one of 50 students in the Alabama All State Show Choir performance.

  • Tate Pierce has advanced as the regional nominee in the Bryant-Jordan Scholarship Competition for Region 7, Area 14.
