Langley Middle School Adventure Ed trip up for approval

Langley Middle School students planning to attend the Adventure Education field trip to the Washington Coast will know by tonight if they can go.

The South Whidbey School Board is set to likely approve the field trip, as it has for several years, at tonight’s school board business meeting. There are several other items up for approval, including the high school seniors’ off-campus proposal, creating a new high school club that promotes recycling and “green” pursuits and the acquisition of a Whidbey Island Bank Visa credit card.

The credit card will be used to purchase software and applications for the district’s various Apple products, including iPads, iPods and MacBooks purchased from the district’s previous capital levy for student use. District Superintendent Jo Moccia recommended the $5,000-limit Visa card in the proposal because it comes with a 50 percent discount toward Apple apps.

There will be a five-minute public comment period before the school board takes any action.

The school board meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. tonight at the board room at South Whidbey Primary Campus, located at 5476 S. Maxwelton Road.
