Jill Brody filed a formal complaint with the Macomb School District in late March under federal Title IX law. Superintendent Alene Reuschel responded that the district is in compliance. Title IX law requires “equivalent” treatment of male and female athletes.
Brody appealed Reuschel's finding in May.
Reuschel says, “She can ask the board to review that decision. And there's a time frame and so once the board has reviewed, and within that time frame, the board will eventually direct me to respond to Dr. Brody their decision.”
District residents will have two opportunities to weigh in on the district's strategic plan and how it is meeting its goals.
Superintendent Alene Reuschel said the district established a number of goals six years ago.
She said, “We're going to get some input as it relates to finance, as it relates to facilities, as it relates to curriculum. And so here's an opportunity for our constituents to be a part and to share some ideas and help us as we look forward for the next five or six years.”
The Macomb School District will save nearly $125,000 on a roof repair project on the oldest section of Lincoln School. The savings comes from re-using some of the roofing material, which is also good for the environment.
The estimated cost was nearly $420,000. The bid was based on a “green” option that will re-install much of the same material.
Superintendent Alene Reuschel said the district can set an example.
The Macomb School District will spend $204,000 to increase its computer network capacity tenfold in time for next school year.
Superintendent Alene Reuschel said the extra capacity will allow greater use of wireless technology at the junior-senior high school next year.
She said, “We will make sure that every classroom-grades 7-12-will have the equivalent of 30 access points within a room which means you can have 30 units needing wireless service of some kind in a room.”
