Board to vote on Langley Middle School closure

South Whidbey School Board directors will vote on a memorandum to rescind the closure of Langley Middle School at tonight’s meeting.

Board Chairman Steve Scoles said last week he expected the new measure to pass. The board is also voting on an adjustment to the 2011-2012 school calendar.

During the business meeting, the board will also hear public comments prior to voting.

Prior to the business meeting, the board will meet in a workshop on a handful of policies. Included for review are director election, staff/student boundaries, uncollected non-tax revenue, infection control program and pesticide notification policies.

At the end of the meetings, the board will recess for an executive session concerning “potential litigation” before adjourning.
