LUDOWICI -- Superintendent Dr. Edwin Pope reported at the March Long County School Board meeting that the BoE design team had met with architect Craig Shillinger of Southern A & E to discuss the preliminary plans for the new school.
The meeting took place on March 5, and one of the key issues discussed was where the school's gym would be located.
According to BoE Chairman Dempsey Golden, at least two options are being considered. This issue was to be addressed between the team and the architect.
The board approved an after-school care program for school-aged dependents, after hearing a presentation from daycare director Donna Rosenbaum. She said the program would be a pilot program for the remainder of the year, and would provide the service to the faculty and staff of the school system.  
The BoE requested more information to justify a proposed work based learning coordinator, who would assist eligible students in a school/work program.  According to Golden, information needed would include the number of students to be in the program, the number of employers involved, and the amount which would need to be paid by local funding.  Vocational director David Edwards was instructed to gather the information and report back.
The board also discussed the 2008-09 school calendar, but tabled the discussion.
