Greater Egg Harbor School Board Discusses New Security Supervisor Role

The Greater Egg Harbor School Board’s recent meeting covered various topics, but the proposal for a new Security Supervisor position to oversee security guards and School Resource Officers (SROs) stood out due to its implications for school safety and budget considerations. In addition to this, the board highlighted the successes of the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) students and recognized significant achievements by educators within the district.

The introduction of a Security Supervisor role garnered attention as it marks a potential change in how the district approaches campus security. The discussion around this proposal was part of the finance committee report, which also included the presentation of the upcoming year’s budget. The proposed budget is set at $87.7 million. Alongside this increase, the tax levy is expected to rise by 1.68% over the previous year. The board provided details on the tax implications for different areas within the district. The creation of the Security Supervisor position would not only have potential safety benefits but also financial ones, as it would entail a restructuring of the current security system within the schools.

Mr. Curran, an advisor for the FBLA, was honored as the New Jersey FBLA Advisor of the Year. Under his guidance, 33 students qualified to attend the national leadership conference in Orlando and brought home various awards. The students themselves shared their experiences and the skills they developed through their participation in FBLA.

The board also recognized the Teacher of the Year, Ms. Carr, who has dedicated 22 years to teaching Spanish and contributing to the World Language Honor Society and the Seal of Biliteracy. Ms. California, another education professional, was praised for her dedication and positive influence on students. These recognitions highlight the district’s appreciation of educators who go above and beyond in their roles and the positive effects they have on the student body.

Updates on school activities were also part of the meeting’s agenda, with a student representative discussing events such as the upcoming Women’s History breakfast and the National Honor Society induction. A “dancing with the staff” event, hosted by the media and dance teams, was highlighted, drawing support and participation from teachers across the district.

Announcements made during the meeting included a plethora of upcoming events and achievements. These encompassed the annual black history concert, the start of flag football, choir and theater trips, and achievements by the girls’ basketball and wrestling teams. Additionally, the board announced the valedictorian and salutatorian for the class of 2024 and celebrated various club activities like the math club’s Pi Day celebrations and a student trip to Mount Snow.

The board members shared their experiences from recent events such as the legislative committee meeting, a performance of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and the High School Choral day at Stockton University. They also discussed construction updates and plans for upcoming board training sessions.

Construction updates on various projects were also provided before the meeting moved into executive session.

The efforts of Brenda Callahan in seeking grants and valuable programs for the district were acknowledged.
