Dawson County work session

The Dawson County Board of Education met for their 5 p.m. work session to go over a list of topics on their agenda in preparation for their meeting next Tuesday evening.

The meeting covered a range of topics, including additions to the College and Career Academy, out-of-state field trips and more.

As of Sept. 1, there were seven positive cases reported among students. Vice Chair Elaine Wilson said the COVID numbers are down, which she said is “encouraging.”

Superintendent Damon Gibbs said something they are looking forward to are the field trips for their Future Farmers of America, if COVID does not stop them from pursuing their out-of-state trips.

The BOE intend to hold an in-person career fair, with hopes that COVID will allow that to be possible. In previous years, there has also been mock interviews, which will be planned around the same time as the career fair.

An upcoming teacher program is being constructed to offered to all students in Dawson County. The program will be designed to give students credit to finalize their degree, as well as have opportunities to come back and intern or student teach in the county.
