Georgia Educators' Museum to locate in S. Hall
By Ken Stanford Staff
GAINESVILLE - The Hall County Board of Education Monday night accepted the Georgia Retired Educators (GREA) offer to pay off property sold to the organization three years ago.
The property on the corner of Falcon Parkway and Hog Mountain Road will be the permanent home of the GREA and the Georgia Educators' Museum.
Also, at Monday night's meeting, Dr. Terry Sapp, who oversees Race To The Top professional development for county schools, updated the board on the status of Race To The Top, including a new teacher evaluation tool.
The board approved a plan to lease about 40,000 square feet of warehouse space for storage and okayed the purchase of additional server space to store student digital work. Currently, every student has five gigabytes of storage on the system servers.
In addition, the board agreed to use $30,000 in SPLOST funds to purchase a pilot security system at Chestatee High and asked the staff to look into providing guidelines for security at school-sponsored events.
Board members learned the school system is in the process of adding approximately 21 math and reading positions, some full-time, some part-time, to be paid for with federal funding. These positions are not guaranteed beyond this year.
