Nonprofit groups will not be charged a rental fee to use the Harry L. Wheeler Community Center and Administrative Offices this year.
The L’Anse Creuse Public Schools Board of Education voted unanimously Monday night to waive rental fees for nonprofit groups using the recently constructed Harry L. Wheeler Community Center and Administrative Offices facility. Community groups seeking the center are split into four categories used to decide the group's fee, Board Trustee David Fowler said before the meeting at at the Wheeler Center off Gratiot Avenue in Clinton Township. Qualifying groups will be able to use the facility free of charge through June 30, 2013. “Part of what we want is for the community to come to this facility and use it,” Fowler said. Board policy states that fees or rental charges for the use of any district facility or grounds can be established to cover …
LCPS Board of Education members clashed Monday night over how the district should name and dedicate facilities.
L’Anse Creuse Public Schools Board of Education members debated Monday night a proposed policy revision, altering how district facilities are named. During the board meeting at Harry L. Wheeler Community Center and Administrative Offices, members approved first drafts of revisions to three board policies, including one that sets guidelines for naming district buildings and creating a district naming committee. Superintendent Jacqueline Johnston said administrators have consolidated three similar policies and have added a committee structure for naming district facilities. The recommended revision suggests that a district facility may be named after an individual only if that person has not been a district employee for at least one year. “…

Some area boards pay adviser to cast wide net, others recruit within their district.
Berkley's next school superintendent simply will switch offices at the administration building. In Trenton, a new superintendent also won't move far this spring – just from a school in that system. At least three other Southeast Michigan districts also filled their top jobs internally last year. Lake Orion in northern Oakland and Chippewa Valley in Macomb County had single-candidate appointments, while Grosse Pointe promoted an administrator after a costly national search and bitterly divided board vote. Berkley's sole prospect got the job March 12. There's no one-size style to recruit a public school system's top appointee and no formula to prove what works best. Clawson is paying a Michigan consultant for a wide search expected to last …

Technology upgrades for all district classrooms, three summer retirements and the reorganization of school board leadership topped the agenda at the July 11 Board of Education meeting.
Technology Upgrades Chippewa Valley will upgrade its technology once again with the installation of the IP Video Solution. The $1,987,730 contract with Sentinel Technologies, Inc., will see wall-mounted CRT TVs removed from every classroom in the district and replaced with a centralized data network that will allow teachers to pull video and television directly from their computers to the classroom's SmartBoard. In common areas where the CRT TVs are removed, flat screens will be installed. However, with the removal of the CRT TVs comes the removal of the digital clocks mounted above the sets. Analog clocks, which always show correct time due to their wireless capability, have already been installed in most buildings. The district will …
