After several meetings of discussion on the behalf of several students who have been attending Cumberland County Schools that don't reside in Cumberland County, the Board of Education decided not to set a rate of tuition costs for out of county students, but to determine if we have room in the classrooms for them or not each year. This will go into effect next year, and it will be brought before the board annually for a decision based on our county's circumstances. Three board members were opposed, but the decision passed.
For the 2012-2013 school year every school in Cumberland County will be equipped with wireless internet. Ms. Kim Herring, who teaches math classes at Cumberland County High School, Glenn L. Martin Elementary's Principal Dr. Sharon Daniels and CTE Computer Lab Coordinator Josette Schlafer spoke to the board about how crucial this update is. Board Chairman and Member Dan Schlafer brought up the state mandate coming in 2014 that will require all testing to be online and Technology Coordinator Eric Testorff pointed out that our schools are 7 years behind in technology.
