Board of Ed committee meets tonight

The Board of Education's Budget and Business Services Committee will meet tonight, the only such meeting held by board members to be held this week.

Items on the agenda include implementation of a $500,000 “New Day for Learning” grant given to the district by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation. The grant is mean to facilitate a curriculum that encourages learning outside the classroom and in afterschool programs for struggling students.

In addition, the committee will discuss a proposal to require teachers to get an English Learner credential. Around 100 teachers do not have the credential, putting their jobs at risk if the district adopts the requirement.

The committee meets at 6 p.m. tonight at the district offices, 555 Franklin St.
