????    At the recent West Washington School Board meeting Principal Tom Rosenbaum reported to the Board that West Washington Elementary had passed and exceeded the ISTEP requirements by scoring 78.9 percent.
    Rosenbaum stated that this score has reflected consistent improvements in scores since the 2005-06 school year.
    WW High School Principal Stroud reported that the Junior/Senior High had taken the test one week late and that the state had lost some of the tests giving them an “undetermined.”
    “It is very difficult for us to know exactly how we did and ISTEP is over and the state will be going to a new assessment format for next year.” stated Stroud
    All board members accepted the recommendation by Superintendent Jackson to a two year extension for Principal Rosenbaum which will extend his contract thru June 2011.

    Superintendent Jackson reported to the board that the Energy Committee met on November 25 to discuss ways the school could make savings. No recommendation was set, another meeting will be held in December.
    The two principals gave their opinion on the Shop with Scrip program. “ The high school is excited about the program and are prepared to move forward with it.” stated Principal Stroud.
    “The only favorable aspect was the students would not be selling junk, this was real money.” stated Principle Rosenbaum.
    The motion passed to accept the program on a six month trial basis from January-June 2009.
