Staff Report



LUMBERTON — The Public Schools of Robeson County Board of Education will hold its regular monthly meeting beginning at 6 p.m Tuesday at the school administration building on Caton Road.

According to the meeting agenda, board members will consider an anti-bullying proclamation. The proclamation is being considered now because October is National Bullying Prevention Month, a school spokesperson said.

The board is also going to be updated on the district’s receipt of the Buzz Aldrin Grant. The grant is named for former NASA astronaut Buzz Aldrin. Aldrin, the lunar module pilot on Apollo 11, was one of the first two humans to land on the moon and the second person to walk on the moon.

According to the school spokesperson, the grant is not monetary. Instead it is a “gift” of a “giant destination Mars map.”

According to the agenda, other business includes:

— Discussion of plans for low-performing schools.

— School curriculum update.

— Presentation concerning school improvement plans.

— An update of the school district’s transportation program.

— Recognition of the school district’s Bus Driver of the Month, and Certified and Classified Employees of the Month.
