The Wayne County Board of Education met in regular session on Monday,

November 17. The Wayne County Early Childhood Center served as hosts for the

meeting, as the board continues its series of meetings around the campus.

Carolyn Davis, the director of the Early Childhood Center, talked with

board members about the nationally accredited preschool, which has served as

a Kentucky Resource Model Classroom. Davis was there when preschool began in

Wayne County in 1990, and there were 17 students in the morning class and 17

students in the afternoon class.

In its third year, Wayne County's preschool program was blended with

Head Start, which combined state dollars with federal dollars and provided

even more opportunities for the young children of Wayne County.

Davis said her goal was to have a "quality program" that was second to

none.

"We're here to help Wayne County students get off to a great start," she

told board members.

Staff were present at the facility to show board members through the

classrooms and to answer any questions regarding the preschool, following

the meeting.

Also during the meeting, the board approved the 2007-2008 audit, as

presented by CPA Barry Daulton. Daulton said the board received an

"unqualified opinion" which is the highest opinion available.

The board also:

€ Approved the non-resident student contracts with surrounding districts

for the 2008-2009 school year.

€ Approved the KETS fiscal year 2008 technology activity report.

€ Changed the January meeting date to Thursday, January 15 due to Martin

Luther King, Jr. Day.

€ Approved the disposal of a surplus bus for scrap.

€ Participated in a two-hour KSBA board member training session.
