June 18--  Six students from the Montgomery County Middle School took top state honors in the annual Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl Essay Competition. 

ImagePrincipal Brittany Deen presented the winner's plaque to (L-R) Brittany Braddy, Tori Walker and Shaw Robinson at the June meeting of the Montgomery County Board of Education.  Unable to attend the meeting were students Brooke Young, Makala Wells and Jansen Killian.




The school board approved a resolution to borrow up to $650,000 to cover operating expenses until county property tax receipts arrive the end of the year.

The board also okayed a preliminary fiscal year 2014 budget of $7.2 million, about $150,000 less than this fiscal year.  The new budget reflects a $200,000 cut in state funding.

The school board will hold a public hearing on the budget Thursday, June 27th at six p.m.

School Superintendent Randy Rodgers reports the school system is ending the fiscal year with a surplus of nearly $144,000.   He projects a fund balance at the end of fiscal year 2014 of about $89,000.

The school board accepted three resignations and hired six new employees.

Resigning are Family and Consumer Science teacher Ginger Horne, Art teacher Heather Roper Smith and bus driver Marvin Jackson.

New hires are first grade teacher Danielle Beck, Art teacher Nancy McDonald, Family and Consumer Science instructor Ashlen Fowler, middle school social science and science teacher Richard Bush, pre-K para-pro Sheriell Brazell and substitute bus driver Rico Phillips.
