The Beaufort County school board will meet Friday and Saturday during a public work session to discuss ways to reduce the district’s achievement gap, the merits of the board retaining its own legal counsel and other issues.
The work sessions are scheduled to begin both days at 8:45 a.m. in the media center of the Beaufort County School District office, 2900 Mink Point Blvd., Beaufort.
Friday’s session will begin with board member training, followed in the afternoon by a budget presentation and discussion of the board’s goals for the coming school year and how those goals relate to the district’s five-year strategic plan.
The board also will consider roof replacements at Beaufort High School and Holy Trinity School as well as the architect contract for the Whale Branch gymnasium and auditorium project.
Saturday’s agenda includes a review of the board’s achievement gap and student discipline. The board also will discuss the procurement process and if the board should seek its own attorney.
