Rapid-paced board meeting
The Spotsylvania County School Board met last night, but barely. The meeting lasted about 15 minutes.
Nothing had changed on projected revenues from the state and county so there was nothing to update for the fiscal 2012 budget.
No one came to speak about the budget during the public hearing.
The board officially accepted the retirement of Courtland Principal Steve Fitch who leaves at the end of this school year to become principal of a South Carolina high school for 2011-12.
The board also named Janet Hodges principal for the Rappahannock Juvenile Detention Center for 2011-12.
