Education Matters Blog: Tupelo School Board 05.14.2013

By Chris Kieffer/NEMS Daily Journal

oday’s Tupelo School Board meeting is about to begin. Four of the five board members are present. Rob Hudson is not currently here.

Today’s agenda is three pages long, so it may be a lengthier meeting. I don’t expect it to pass last year’s record of three hours, though. The board will not be voting during this meeting, but will merely hear presentations and reports. They will meet again at 5 p.m. today at Rankin Elementary School. At that meeting, they will have several public recognitions and will vote on today’s agenda.

Board President Beth Stone has called the meeting to order.

Stone welcomes Thomas Street Elementary teacher Hannah Kimbrough, who is the recommendation for Tupelo’s new girls soccer coach. The board will vote on Kimbrough at tonight’s meeting.
