Board approved of an Interagency Agreement with Chipola College for the Take Stock in Children Program.

“This program has been around for years, raising money for scholarships and then about three years it just kind of stalled out,” said Dixon. “Chipola College has volunteered to administrate this program for us at now cost. This program is for at risk children who won’t receive academic scholarships and just fall between the cracks.”

Board member Debbie Kolmetz said that she was happy that the Take Stock in Children scholarship was returning to Holmes County schools.

“It’s wonderful that we have Take Stock in Children back in Holmes County,” said Kolmetz. “It’s so beneficial to our children.”

Board approved of Project Application for 21st Century Community Learning Center to help fund the local WINGS program.

“This is a wonderful program that has been very beneficial to our community,” said Williams.

Board also approved of Service Agreement for Applied Behavior Analysis through Florida State University’s Early Childhood Autism Program; Performance Contract with Spectrum Counseling first year extension; Performance Contract for Occupational Therapy Services second year extension; July 29 meeting minutes; and Project Application for IDEA Part B, Entitlement and IDEA, Part B and Preschool.
