Wilson to join board formally

Dec. 10, 2012 @ 12:02 PM

Ed Wilson, a retired educator with 22 years experience in the Vance County School system, will represent District 4 during Monday night’s meeting of the Vance County Board of Education.

Wilson will take the place of Ronald B. Kinsley, who was redistricted out of his seat, after a four-year term. He will take his oath of office alongside Emeron Cash and Dorothy Williams, representing Districts 5 and 3, respectively.

All three board members ran unopposed for the school board during November.

Reorganization of the board is also expected.

A superintendent’s report is planned, which will include a presentation of the audit report for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2012.

Also included in the superintendent’s report will be a bid approval for the roofing costs of Aycock Elementary, Dabney Elementary and Zeb Vance Elementary.

A recommendation will be made from the office of a consulting engineer to award the lowest responsible bidder for all three bids.

Upon approval, Gupton Services, Inc. would be awarded the bids of all three projects and a construction contract for work will be forwarded to the contractor for execution.

All standing committees under the board of education will present items for discussion.

The personnel committee has three items for action including employment recommendations, resignations/retirements, and leaves of absences.

Work order repairs completed at 13 different schools, the administrative services center, and the facilities department will be reviewed by the buildings and grounds committee.

Other agenda items include new business, recurring items and an executive session.
