Verona public schoolsThe Verona Board of Education has posted the agenda for its next meeting, which will be held on Tuesday, May 22.

The meeting will open with three presentations. Brookdale Avenue School Principal Nicole Stuto and some of the elementary school’s students will show how they have been using Flipgrid, a video-based discussion platform. Carol Thomas, vice president of the Verona Education Association, which is the union for Verona’s teachers and paraprofessionals, will make the annual VEA board presentation.

There will also be a presentation on full-day kindergarten by Verona’s elementary school principals and Charles Miller, Verona’s director of curriculum, instruction and assessment. In March, the BOE approved a resolution to ask for a public vote on creating a full-day kindergarten program in November. (The second public question approved at that meeting, on mental health, will be the subject of a BOE presentation in the fall). If the $215,000 plan is approved, it will result in a permanent increase in the public school district’s tax levy and the addition to our taxes would have to be used exclusively for full-day kindergarten. A previous ballot question on full-day kindergarten failed six years ago.

The BOE will also be approving the calendar for the 2019-2020 school year and revisions to the 2018-2019 school calendar, among other business.

The meeting, which will be held in the Learning Commons at Verona High School, begins at 7 p.m. It is open to the public. You can read the full agenda here.

The BOE’s website contains information on meeting dates, agendas and resolutions, Board policies, and videos of BOE meetings going back to the 2011-2012 school year.
