The Cherokee Central Schools (CCS) Board of Education was attending the North Carolina School Boards Association Annual Conference, and so they were unable to meet in their regular spot at the school. Instead, they chose to meet on the evening of Monday, Nov. 18 in Greensboro.
The meeting was called to order with Chairperson Jennifer Thompson; Vice Chair Isaac Long; Secretary Tara Reed-Cooper; Board members Gloria Griffin, and Regina Ledford-Rosario; School Board Assistant Sunnie Clapsaddle; Superintendent Dr. Michael Murray; and Assistant Superintendent Dr. Beverly Payne all present. Board member Karen French-Browning was absent for the meeting, and there was no Tribal Council representative at the meeting.
The only business in open session was the consent agenda. There were three items up for vote:
- Demetrius Gibson is approved as the Integrated Classroom Teacher Assistant for Cherokee Elementary School.
- Sydney Kanupp is approved as an Elementary Teacher for Cherokee Elementary School.
- Joseph Smith is approved as a full-time Custodian for Cherokee Central School.
Vice Chairperson Griffin made a motion to approve these resolutions, and Ledford-Rosario provided a second. All the items passed unanimously.
According to School Board Assistant Sunnie Clapsaddle, there was no other business discussed in the open session. The rest of the meeting was held in a closed session and was adjourned at 7:24 p.m.
The next meeting of the CCS Board of Education will take place at their usual meeting room, and it will start at 4:45 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 2.
