Cheektowaga schools adopt goals

Cheektowaga Central School Board members want to plan for the replacement and upgrading of high-cost items such as musical instruments and technology equipment, as well as continue monitoring student achievement in the next year.

Those are among the goals adopted by the School Board for the 2007-08 school year.

The board selected several areas to address, and many of them are similar to last year's goals.

They want to encourage student participation and involvement in the district by continuing to recognize students at board meetings and have a student serve as an ex-officio member of the board.

Board members also will implement the Safe Schools Helpline program -- an anonymous tipline to report potential incidents or problems in the schools -- in the coming year and maintain communication with the Erie County Association of School Boards on the recommendations of the regional collaboration study.

"We looked at last year. We did reach a lot of the goals we set last year. It's exciting to see we're following our goals," said board Vice President Brian Gould.

The board also plans to continue to "Celebrate Central" by supporting the youth summit this October and continuing to participate in community committees and groups.

As part of its capital plan, the board will monitor the implementation of the bond project passed last December while looking to upgrade high-cost equipment.
