Exeter School Board reviews district activities

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Exeter R-6 School Board members heard reports on several activities taking place at the elementary campus in recent weeks during their September meeting.

Access Dental served 63 students in the district and Walmart Vision visited the campus as well.

Programs initiated at the campus include new Tiger Time and Caught Caring, an anti-bullying campaign.

Tiger Time is a program that assists all students in enrichment, math, reading, and discussion with the school counselor for at least 30 minutes per day. The program focuses on the individual needs of each student in an attempt to raise student performance.

Caught Caring is a program in which students are rewarded for positive caring behavior. Students are presented a sticker for displaying such behavior and their name is added to a list of those eligible for a weekly reward.

In high school news, board members approved students' participation at the FFA National Convention in Indianapolis, Ind.

Jennifer Baxley tendered her resignation to the board, which was approved.

Superintendent Dr. Ernest Raney reported the Reznor Rood heating unit had not been programmed and representatives had been to the district to correct the problem. He also advised members the heater blower had burned out and the company was bidding the replacement work.

The district also took possession on a new bus for the district's fleet.
