Robin Smith, principal at Terre Haute North Vigo High School, is expected to be named principal of Booker T. Washington High School during tonight’s meeting of the Vigo County School Board.

The board meets at 6 p.m. in the administration building, 686 Wabash Ave.

Smith begins her new duties July 1.

In recent years, Tammy Rowshandel, South Vigo principal, has also served as the Booker T. Washington principal. The two schools are on the same campus.

Washington is an alternative school that serves pregnant, parenting and at-risk teens.

In other matters, the board will be asked to approve performance stipends for classified staff. Amounts vary depending on the type of job; cafeteria workers who work more than four hours per day will receive $100.

Technical and managerial workers would receive $265, while nurses will receive $380. Custodial/maintenance workers would receive $115.

The total amount being distributed is $100,182.

Teachers already received their stipends during the school year, based on state performance awards, said Superintendent Rob Haworth.

“VCSC has also presented other staff with their own performance award. We are following that past practice.”

In other matters, Haworth is expected to recommend an architectural firm that will prepare an eight-year facilities plan; the firm also will conduct community meetings to gather citizen feedback.

He is expected to recommend either J. Lake Architecture/Schmidt Associates or Fanning Howey.

The board also will discuss goals it has established for the superintendent.

In the spotlight, members of the Vigo County Parent Network will share information.
