The Oak Ridge Board of Education tonight will consider a budget amendment approving the use of $500,000 from the school system’s fund balance to restore bus transportation to students affected by an expanded “parent responsibility zone” approved in June.
The board will also consider updating a policy banning tobacco use to also prohibit the use of electronic cigarettes in school district buildings, public seating areas and restrooms, and in district vehicles, classes, and activities.
The board is also expected to review end-of-year Head Start data from the Brigance Diagnostic Assessment that tracked school readiness across six key areas of growth during the 2013-2014 school year. The data indicates increased school readiness for the children based on three different assessment periods throughout the year.
