Board Briefs: CCSD School Board Approves Legislative Partnership Priorities for 2019 Lawmaker Session Villa Participants

The Cherokee County School Board on Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018, approved its annual Legislative Partnership Program outlining requests for the local Legislative Delegation’s consideration during the upcoming session, and local control topped the list. 

Senior Board Judges Needed!

Dear Sequoyah Community: 
 
We are seeking community members to judge Senior Boards, an afternoon of Senior Capstone Project presentations. This event is a significant milestone for our seniors, and we need your help to ensure its success.  
 
The date for this year’s Senior Boards is Thursday, December 6, from 2-4 p.m., which includes time for training on the rubric and for refreshments. Please note the time change from previous years. You will receive training on the expectations at 2 p.m. and will judge presentations until 4 p.m. The students are not doing blogs this year, so your time commitment will be limited to the two hours you are here to receive training and to see presentations.  
 
If you are a returning judge, you will need to participate in the training as the requirements for the product have changed, along with the timeline. The Senior Capstone Project is now a one-semester project county-wide, which is the reason that Senior Boards have been moved to December. 
 
We really need and appreciate your help in making Senior Boards a meaningful experience for our seniors. Thanks to all of you who come to help year after year, and we look forward to welcoming new faces this year! 
 
Please use the following link to RSVP.
