School Board Considers New Program for Bruin Point, Recognizes Schools’ Efforts


Students at Bruin Point Elementary may soon have the opportunity to receive piano instruction during the school day. During last week’s regularly scheduled school board meeting, Bruin Point Principal Stacy Basinger presented her plan to make piano instruction a new option for students at the school.

To implement the plan, Bruin Point administrators will need to contract the existing music teacher for an additional three hours a week. Four students can be accommodated at a time and they will have one lesson per week. The only expense to students to participate will be for piano books.

The school board meeting also included recognition for schools, counseling departments and students. Principals and counselors highlighted their respective school’s efforts to help those affected by flooding.

Lighthouse High School was also recognized for its recent accreditation through AdvancED. According to Lighthouse principal Karleen Bianco, the school was awarded the highest scores ever given to a non-traditional high school.

Counselors from each secondary school shared their recently completed comprehensive guidance reviews and members of Carbon High FFA told the board about their recent seventh place finish at the Western National Range Competition in Elko, Nev.
