OCTOBER 1, 2019 


  • Recognition of building crews and students
  • Facilities renovation update
  • Approval of five-year financial forecast
  • Levy for 2020


President Jodi Sourini, Dan Heinz, Malia Lewis, James Posch, and Beverly Wright were present. Also present were Superintendent Elizabeth Kirby and Treasurer Scott Gainer. The regular meeting began at 7:20 p.m., after conclusion of an executive session, and ended at 8:45 p.m. 

Recognition of building crews and students

The board thanked members of the building crews (trades, grounds, custodians and bus drivers) for donating their time to renew the Roxboro Middle School kitchen.

The board also recognized AP scholars and Tiger Team Members of the Month for their achievements.

Facilities renovation update

The Bond Accountability Commission reported that the middle school project was completed on time and under budget.

Mr. Gainer indicated that a lay facilities committee will be formed to study all buildings.

Approval of five-year financial forecast

Mr. Grainer presented the five-year forecast and commented on it. Because the CH-UH district is still under the state funding cap, it will receive the same amount of state funding this year. After discussion, the board unanimously approved the forecast.

Levy for 2020

The board discussed when they would have to meet in order to put a levy on the March 2020 ballot. The last levy was passed in November 2016; it was calculated to last three years but has lasted four years.

Upcoming meetings are an Oct. 15 work session and a Nov. 1 regular meeting. All meetings start at 7 p.m. and are held at the board of education offices.
