Head Start to share classroom equipment

The Washington County Board of Education approved a memorandum of agreement with Resources for Children and Families at its Tuesday night meeting.

Resources for Children and Families is the organization spearheading Head Start this year.

The memorandum states Resources for Children and Families will share classroom equipment, such as TVs and VCRs, purchased with federal money with certain pre-K and kindergarten classrooms in lieu of rent.

Head Start will begin Monday, Sept. 11, for most of the 369 children enrolled. Children enrolled in the program at Noland Village Center started Tuesday.

Washington County Board of Education members and Schools Superintendent Herman G. Bartlett invite area residents to join them in Coffee and Conversation Saturday, Sept. 16, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Washington County Technical High School at 50 West Oak Ridge Drive.


Coffee and Conversation is designed to give community members an opportunity to talk one-on-one about educational issues with School Board representatives.

Elected School Board members are Paul Bailey, president; Doris Nipps, vice president; B. Marie Byers; J. Herbert Hardin; Edwin Hayes; Andrew R. Humphreys and Mary Wilfong.

Each committee must not have more than three board members on it and terms are for one year, according to School Board President Paul Bailey.

Policy Review and Development, Facilities, Finance, Human Resource and Curriculum and Instruction committees were formed.

Members of the committees were not appointed Tuesday night.
