SCHOOL BOARD MEETS TONIGHT AND TOMORROW MORNING

SCHOOL BOARD MEETS TONIGHT AND TOMORROW MORNING

The Morongo Unified School District Board of Education will deal with a smorgasbord of issues at its regular meeting tonight. Here with the details is reporter David Haldane…
The fate of an abandoned high school is on the agenda at tonight’s meeting of the Morongo Unified School District Board of Education.
Specifically, Twentynine Palms’ Monument High School in the 72000 block of Hatch Road. On the table: leasing the unused campus to the Adult Education Block Grant Consortium for use in adult education programs.
Other items up for discussion will be revising the district’s nondiscrimination policy to reflect new laws prohibiting racially derogatory names for schools, athletic teams or mascots; updating its charter school oversight policy; and examining its relationship to such school-connected groups as booster clubs and parent-teacher organizations.
Tonight’s meeting gets underway 7 p.m. at Joshua Tree Elementary School on Sunburst Avenue.
When Ronald Palmer died shortly after being re-elected to the Morongo Unified School District board of trustees, the board voted to fill his seat by appointing a new board member. Tomorrow morning (Wednesday, January 11), the board will review the applications and determine questions to ask the candidates, followed by interviews. The discussion part of the meeting will start at 8 a.m., followed by the interviews at 9:40 a.m., in the Sportsman’s Club on Sunburst Avenue in Joshua Tree.
