Area districts visit Watkins Glen

WATKINS GLEN—Other schools are visiting Watkins Glen to experience the technology and curriculum in place.
That is what the middle and elementary school principals reported during the Monday, Oct. 18, Watkins Glen school board meeting.  Elementary Principal Rod Weeden reported that three teachers and one coordinator from Penn Yan would be visiting Oct. 27.  He explained they are interested in the art program and how it is taught at Watkins.
Principal Kristine Somerville said more schools want to visit the middle school because of the Mobile Learning Devices in use.  She added some also want more information on the Toolbox PRO program through BOCES.  Somerville explained when it comes to Toolbox PRO, staff are still working out the kinks.
In other business:
The school board accepted resignations from Mildred Bailey as food service helper and Kelly Sterner as boys varsity assistant swim coach.  The board then approved to appoint Bailey as monitor, and Gretta Zafonte as food service helper.
Board member Robert Dill asked that approving the facilities study advisory committee be tabled.  It was on the agenda for approval.  The board agreed waiting until another meeting.
Somerville also reported on the 21st Century After School program.  She said there are over 100 students participating.  Staff expected between 60 and 80.  Somerville added sports are part of the program now as well.
The next regular meeting will be Monday, Nov. 1.  It is expected to begin at 6:30 p.m., following an executive session.
