Brunswick County School Board Was To Consider Improve merit Plans Wednesday HY SUSAN USHER Brunswick County Board of Education mem bers will consider individual plans for improve ment developed by all county schools and the system's central office staff at a special meeting Friday afternoon. The board will meet at 5 p.m. at the central schools office in Southport to hear recommenda tions and share comments with members of a countywidc panel that reviewed the plans. The panel's recommendations were shared onc-on one with each school, and in some cases incorpo rated in the second drafts presented to the school board last Wednesday. The plans outline goals and strategies for im proving student achievement in subject areas, and for general improvement in other areas, such as parent and volunteer involvement and public relations. Content is tied generally to the coun ty's overall three-year plan, and the school's per formance in relation to the last county "report card" from the state and its year-old data. The plans "arc like alphabet soup," said Gloria Talley, staff development/ public informa tion director and review committee chairman, as she distributed the plans for board members' re view and comment. "1 suggest that's good. Many of the schools were quite visionary. Wc were pleased with that." Most of the schools proposed flexible sched ules to allow teachers time to plan lessons to gether, reflecting a new emphasis on integrated instruction such as writing across the curriculum and use of common themes. To avoid scheduling conflicts for parents, the committee recommend ed that all schools schedule planning the same day, Wednesday. Board member Bill Fairley raised one con cern at Wednesday's meeting. He said that in the plans he had reviewed, differentiated pay would be distributed without regard to student perfor mance, though the board had stressed otherwise. "That reflects the past," said Superintendent Ralph Johnston of the pay plans, which allocate faculty members points, and extra pay, for taking on extra responsibilities such as serving on com mittees, mentoring new teachers and supervising extracurricular activities. "Planning is a new thing for teachers. They are more accustomed to pedagogy." Tallcy said the committee sent back its philo sophical statement and reminded schools that ex tra pay should be tied to student achievement. However, she cautioned, "The teachers have to vote for the differentiated pay plan. They may not vote for what the committee recommends." She advised, "Look carefully at that and con sider the direction you want this system to go." Tallcy also asked the board to look at how principals' and centra! officc supervisors' pay plans would be tied to performance under the proposed central officc plan. In other business last week, the board: ?tabled a proposed two-year contract for Dia mond Driving School after Chairman Donna Baxter said she was concerned that other local residents qualified to provide the service would not have a chance to bid. ?awarded a two-year contract to AFLAC, the in surance company that handles a "cafcteria-stylc" benefits plan for employees. ?referred to staff a request from spokesman Jana Martin of Sunset Beach and a group of volun teers who want to bring an AIDS education pre sentation into the schools. The program would supplement '.lie four lessons on AIDS students now rcccivc in seventh grade health classes. Fred McRcc, a Wilmington educator, has already pre sented a similar AIDS program to JROTC classes at North Brunswick High School. "Whatever we're doing is not enough," said Martin. "We need to do more." ?agreed to lobby for Senate Bill 136, which would continue a half-cent sales tax for school capital projects that is otherwise due to "sunset" this year.

Shallotte ? 754-2777 LOCALS, HELP US PRESERVE OUR COASTAL CAROLINA HERITAGE* My family has been here in Brunswick County since circa 1748. They lived off the land and sea passing down recipes from generation to generation. The original Brunswick Countians utilized local ingredients to develop what is now known as Calabash Cuisine. In comparison. Calabash cuisine and Low Country (region between Charleston and Savannah) cuisine are very similar. Many of the people who settled this area came from the Low Country region and brought their cooking traditions with them. We here at Ocean Isle Cafe wish to preserve our local cuisine native to Brunswick County. If you have some recipes to share or have any requests for recipes, please contact me by mail. We will feature local recipes here at our establish ment on a weekly basis, giving credit to the originator. A fifty dollar prize will be awarded to the recipe of the month. Variances on recipes of the northern persuasion will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please send recipes to: OCEAN ISLE CAFE 1 1 1 Causeway Dr., Ocean Isle Beach, NC 28469. ATTN: RECIPE CONTEST Ensure that you include your name, address, and phone number. Recipes for desserts, vegetables, meats, etc. I.* HHl.Yjft,, .Htfm
