Business as usual at the WSCC Board of Trustees Meeting Monday afternoon. No issues with passing anything on the agenda. Basic house keeping issues made up the February agenda. Some issues discussed were continuing student support services and transfer credits, along with dual-enrollment and intercollegiate activities.
Monday night, Superintendent Andrea Large watched as the Ludington Board of Education conducted its February meeting. Some issues scheduled on the agenda were, a report on the new MSTEP testing that has replaced the MEAP test of years past. Large talked about how the results were being released on a student-by-student basis as opposed to a collection of data that would be more helpful in identifying weaknesses and strengths.
Another hot button topic for the meeting was just how funds will be dispersed once Governor Rick Snyder’s budget is finalized. Large also said that student count could impact the funds the district receives and there is some controversy on just how the student count numbers will be taken into account. After the preliminary count, the current number of students enrolled in Ludington Schools is 2,159 students.
