The Shelby County R-IV School Board held its first regular meeting of the year on Wednesday, Jan. 11 in the middle school library.
   Lunch Policy
   No official action was taken on the unpaid lunch bill issue. But wording was changed in the policy to try to make things better. The board will review the wording and come back next month and consider approving the changes.
   The changes in the policy include a statement saying, “At no point will a student be denied 1 breakfast and 1 lunch a day.” It also added the statement “The school district reserves the right to prohibit a student from walking at graduation for bills owed or bad checks that are due.” Both of those additions will be up for approval in the February meeting.
   Principals Reports
   Clarence Elementary Principal Kelly Williams reported that the student reporters did a special tribute to Dwain Totten and his work on creating a slide show/video with student participation, thanking him for his hard work and dedication to the school.
   Students and staff collected and delivered items to the Caring Tree for Families in the community.
   Students held annual Christmas Carol Cat Time on the last week of school. Parties and Box Top Celebrations were enjoyed by students that week.
   Students have earned over $250 towards box tops this year, according to Williams.
   She also noted that students have completed their practice test for the Evaluate and some grades have begun initial testing.
   Williams said teachers in her building attended a work day on Jan. 3 to learn about Evaluate, a new assessment tool that will be used to help teachers learn more about their students. They also collaborated with grade level teams to plan the rest of the year.
   Williams said teachers met with Terri Powell on Jan. 5 to determine how to best address the lower 20 percent of the students and to raise their level of performance.
   She also reported that special education teachers are preparing for triennial MSIP review and have been working hard to make sure things are in order and are ready to submit.
   Shelbina Elementary Principal Katie Stueve reported that back on Dec. 15, the Preschool students performed a Christmas program for their families during school.
   She mentioned that TAPS sponsored the movie at the Hawkins Theater for the students. It was held on Dec. 20.
   On Jan. 3, teachers came back from Christmas break for training for the new Evaluate assessment program.
   Stueve reported that a TAPS meeting was held on Jan. 9.
