The Fulton Public Schools Board of Education will hear about enrollment, facilities, curriculum and vocational programs Wednesday.

The school board meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the Fulton High School commons.

Vocational agriculture teacher Carson Humphreys will provide an update on the vocational department.

"All of the program improvements that have occurred since the last review have been geared toward better preparing our students for post-secondary education and high-wage employment," according to the vocational report.

Fulton High School offers classes in business, computer science, personal finance, family and consumer science and agriculture.

According to a student survey on career-technical education classes, 40.1 percent of respondents plan on working after high school.

A majority of students said they would like to gain work experience in their chosen field as a part of high school.

Some of the most enrolled-in courses include life skills, nutrition and wellness, personal finance and intro to engineering. Students also expressed high interest in foods courses.

Assistant Superintendent Chris Hubbuch will discuss the annual performance report, assessments and the district calendar.

Superintendent Ty Crain will discuss enrollment. According to meeting documents, current K-12 enrollment is 2,148 — last year ended with 2,347.

Meeting documents include potential plans for parking lot improvements at Bush and McIntire Elementary Schools. The McIntire maps include additional parking on the north side of the school.

In other business, board president Andy Bonderer will present on a strategic planning proposal from Education Governance Leadership. The current strategic plan runs through 2022.

The proposal indicates it will cost $9,750 for EGL to work with the school district to conduct interviews, present on themes and priorities and help develop objectives and goals.

The board will consider approving a construction manager at risk contract with Nabholz.

The board will also honor staff members Dickie Bishop, a custodian at Bush Elementary School, and Heather Yates, a social studies teacher at Fulton Middle School.
