The board members unanimously accepted Superintendent Claire Dryden’s recommendations to hire Sharon Laros as special education teacher at Cleburne County High School and to accept the resignation of Scott Benefield, custodian at Fruithurst Elementary School.
The board members also unanimously nominated Sammy Jackson to replace Joe Braden as their representative on the Cleburne County Board of Equalization, which hears residents’ appeals on the market value of properties. Braden recently resigned his seat.
The high school teachers started training on Google Drive, an online application that allows users to access documents anywhere, Dryden said. The teachers will begin using the program with new computers the system bought for its initiative to provide every high school student with a computer. This year, the system bought enough computers for two mobile computer labs. Next year, the system plans to buy enough computers for each student in seventh through 12th grades, administrators have said.
Also during the meeting, school officials also announced that the district’s budget hearings are scheduled for Sept. 9 at Cleburne County Middle School and Sept. 10 at Ranburne High School.
