By Jennifer Summer

The Fort Thomas Board of Education met on Monday, July 11th at 6:30 pm.  All board members were present.

Jon Stratton presented the Cappies Award winners for the HMS production of Little Shop of Horrors.  Noah Moore won for Best Male Critic, and Ben Bardgett, Ellie Conniff, Scott Earle, and Barbara Nagel won for Best Marketing & Publicity.  The Board congratulated the students and gave each a Champions t-shirt and a certificate of achievement.   

"We're here to recognize them for their accomplishments," said Mr. Stratton.

Jerry Wissman gave the Board an update on the construction work, and shared current photos of the renovations at Moyer. A motion passed to pay Morel Construction $562,942.80 for the work at Moyer.  


Jon Stratton made a recommendation to opt out of the Federal Lunch Program for the 2016-2017 school year.  This passed unanimously with a motion by Mrs. Lisa Duckworth and a second by Mr. Jeff Beach.

Ginger Webb brought up the issue of eliminating the elementary Literacy Leader positions and establishing a Grade Level Leader position at each elementary school.  

"Those positions were in charge of training for our portfolio scoring, coordinating the portfolios, training the teachers and so forth, and we no longer do that as part of state assessment, so the principals felt like the funds that were going to fund that position could be better utilized in another manner, so they're requesting that we create grade level leaders at the elementary, and they would be able to selective one teacher in each grade level in each of the buildings to be a liaison between the administration and the teachers to help with communication, to help with technology integration, and so forth," said Ms. Webb.  The stipend will not require additional funds, but rather will be divided up six ways at each school.  

The motion was made by Mr. Jeff Beach and seconded by Mrs. Karen Allen, and passed unanimously.
