Students from the school district presented updates and details on upcoming events at the March 13 Salisbury Township School District Board of Directors meeting.
Seventh grade students from Salisbury Middle School, Zackary Baab and Dominic Popovich, provided an update on the school fundraiser “Pennies for Patients.” The school raised $2,000 and will reward students with a pizza party.
On Feb. 6, the Salisbury Township School District School Board held a special meeting to accept the resignation of board member Robert Kulp effective Jan. 18.
Kulp cited other responsibilities taking up his time and felt now was the best time to leave the board.
The district solicitor told the board they had two options to fill the vacancy: appoint someone or advertise, interview candidates and appoint within a 30-day time frame from the date of resignation. The board’s efforts to find a replacement ended with one interested candidate.
Building principals Heather Morningstar, Salisbury High School, Ken Parliman, Salisbury Middle School, Zachary Brem, Harry S Truman Elementary School and Dr. Grace Hartman, Western Salisbury Elementary School provided assessment updates to the curriculum and technology committee Jan. 28 at SHS.
Morningstar said SHS is well above the state average in all areas; Literature Keystone Performance is 16.5 percent above state average at 79.5 percent proficiency. Special education, learning disability students and the Hispanic sub groups are not meeting the established goals.
