Albertville High School

Painting of the Albertville High School buildings was completed early this summer.

The Albertville Board of Education approved last Wednesday morning the addition of a new parking lot at the Albertville High School Campus.

Wiregrass Construction submitted the low bid of $590,228.41 for the project, which Superintendent Boyd English said may begin sometime in August. The lot will be located on the grassy area adjoining the current parking lot to the left of the main entrance to the high school.

“We’re going to expand our parking, and that’s kind of our first phase of our capital planning for the high school to enhance some of our buildings as we continue to grow as a 7A school system,” English said.

He said the new lot will add 60 spots to the school’s current parking capacity. However, the planned Kinesiology Exercise Science Center will take up some spaces directly adjacent to the Fine Arts Centers, so the parking area may end up with around 170 or more spaces by the time the project is complete.

In other business, the board:

• Approved ACS to join PEPPM Cooperative Purchasing, a national governmental cooperative purchasing program.

• Approved an out-of-state trip for the high schools FFA to travel to Indianapolis, Indiana, October 26-30, 2021 for the National FFA Convention. This trip will be at no cost to the board.

During a regular meeting Tuesday morning, the board:

• Approved the June 2021 financials. Revenues were at $6,108,046.21, and expenditures were at $5,014,227.39.

• Approved various fundraiser requests.

• Approved the job description for the position of administrative secretary.

• Approved English to apply for federal funds.

• Approved the 2021-22 CNP application agreement.

• Approved a one-time supplement of $500 for all ACS employees employed on Aug. 31, 2021. This supplement is to account for intervention, remediation and recovery efforts for the 2021-2022 school year.  Recovery efforts will result in required professional development activities for all ACS employees. “Our teachers have worked tirelessly for our children,” English said, “and they’re going to continue to do so. We wanted to say ‘thank you,’ and at the same time provide this supplement as we continue to plan for coming out of this pandemic stronger than ever before.”

A good article should have good links to relevant articles. I liked your article. I recently looked at good citation generation options for articles and scientific papers. Such services https://edubirdie.com/citation/apa/cite-a-chapter/ help to compose the correct structure of the APA of papers and avoid duplicates in the text. I am glad that students can not waste time on long releases of their articles. The citation index will grow very quickly.
