Pastor Joe Webb, long-time employee of the Greene County School System, was named as Transportation Supervisor effective November 28, 2011. He replaces James “Dee” Powell, who retired recently.
The meeting opened with a financial report from CSFO Shane Martin.

Local revenue totalled $54,000, leaving a total in the General Fund of $4 million and a grand total in all funds of $16.6 million.
The original budget for the year 2012 was approved by the State Board of Education. Fiscal Year 2011 was closed out and the report was sent to the State Department of Education in a timely fashion.
In her report, Interim Superintendent Emma Louie advised the board of the following:
The system was awarded a $4,000 Art Grant from the State of Alabama; schools will close for Thanksgiving and winter break from November 21-25; parents received students’ grade reports on November 14; After school tutoring at Greene County High School will begin November 28; the Alabama High School Graduation Exam will be administered December 5-9 at Greene County High School; a card of condolence has been sent to the family of Dr. Ethel Hall, former State School Board Member from Birmingham, who died recently.
The Board held elections for Chairman and Vice Chairman. Leo Branch was re-elected as Chairman and Bobbie Morgan as Vice-Chairman.
Board member Lester Brown reported on the public hearing held on November 14 in the Greene County Courthouse regarding redistricting. He said that the County Commission sponsored the hearing after working with West Alabama Regional Planning Commission. Two different plans were submitted by an employee of WARPC. Brown noted that the School Board was not consulted in any of the commission’s processes and to him the proposals were unacceptable. According to Brown, the School Board must be involved since they have the same districts as the Commission. He also advised them that the redistricting will primarily involve District 1 and District 2, with 1 having too many residents and 2 having too few.
