Velma-Alma School Board approves PTO

(Continued)

DUNCAN —

Other agenda items included:
  • Board members voted in approval the reemployment of all certified elementary/middle school teachers, certified secondary teachers and support staff for the 2013-14 school year.
  • A presentation of the annual Student College Remediation Report for the 2010-11 school year, showed that 33.3 percent of Velma-Alma graduates took a remedial course as college freshmen, which is less than the state average of 39.2 percent.
  • During the superintendent report, Garrett showed the board a citation the school received for achieving excellence for the 2011-12 school year, which means 100 percent of Velma-Alma’s seniors met all graduation requirements. This is a rare citation that few schools receive, he said.
