The 2022-2023 handbook will be available on the website. Dr. Kashner shared that the handbook was reviewed with suggestions shared as needed. The majority of the changes were minor updates, but a significant change in the cell phone policy for 6-12 graders. Dr. Kashner highlighted the rationale for the change and feels it is an important change for students to have a release from their cell phones during the school day. The letter can be found here.
GASB 54 resolution was enacted in 2010 to ensure Governmental accounting practices. Eastland has been up to date on this annual practice each year since 2010.
The Three Circules grant is an annual salary matching grant that districts can apply to compensate FFA advisors for their time put in outside of contractual hours. To qualify for the grant, advisors must complete and document at least 400 hours in this role. Dr. Kashner complimented our FFA Advisor, Mrs. Feltmeyer for her outstanding work, and suggested that we continue to explore this grant as long as it is available.
