Principals report on improvements to South Whidbey School Board

Principals of South Whidbey schools will update the school board on their schools’ improvement plans Wednesday night. South Whidbey’s schools were required to do improvement plans after failing to meet adequate yearly progress, a state benchmark for standardized test scores.

There are five schools in the South Whidbey School District: South Whidbey High School, Langley Middle School, South Whidbey Elementary School, Bayview School and Whidbey Island Academy.

The board will also review eight policies covering a range of issues. Up for the board’s discussion are policies about curriculum, use of reasonable force, student health and the recruitment and selection of staff. The school board meets at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 13 at the board room at the South Whidbey Primary Campus, 5476 S. Maxwelton Road in Langley.

There will also be a closed door executive session to discuss principals’ contracts.
