Several classes were also recognized; students from Amy Wykle's A+ Essentials and Networking+ classes were recognized for passing the certification exams for their respective courses, and students from Jessica Adkins' Certified Nursing Assistant training class were recognized as well for passing a certification exam. The SCHS band was recognized for scoring a 2 at a judging competition at Woodrow Wilson High School; the Future Farmers of America land- judging team was recognized for placing third in a competition of land-judging and first in home site judging. Recipients of the Promise Scholarship were also recognized. Following recognition of SCHS students, the Board recognized winners and state-wide competitors in the Social Studies Fair from Hinton Area Elementary, and several students from Jumping Branch Elementary that were chosen to act as paiges. Following recognitions, the BOard moved on to consent items, including approval of minutes, payment bills, out-of-county transfers, and the annual AP Civics field trip to Washington D.C. The board discussed the Five Days Reimagined plan which would allow students in Summers 'County to miss five more snow days that would not require making up at the end of the year, bringing the total of built in days to eleven. Tteachers will send home "snow packets" to be completed and turned in for a grade to offset the missed learning time, and faculty must still report to work during the five days. Superintendent Kim Rhodes stated her report along with future plans of the board. As stated in her report, there are currently 1531 students currently enrolled in Summers County Schools and Talcott Elementary has also invited the board to attend their straight A banquet. Regarding the 5th grade, both the Talcott and Jumping Branch elementary students will be going back to their respective schools next year, but HAE students will remain at the middle school due to space constraints.
