Planners Review Conceptual Plan for Possible Business

Paris, Tenn.- The Paris Regional Planning Commission met Thursday night and reviewed a conceptual plan for 903 Manley Street. Community Development Director Jennifer Morris said Chris Willoughby had purchased the property, which is surrounded by Manley, Third, and Tyson Avenue. The property is currently B-1 zone and currently has a concrete retaining wall as well as a drastic change in topography from the lot to street level.

Morris said the lot has always been used as residential and accessed by Manley St. Years ago the City quitclaimed  the abandoned street to the property owners at that time which means the abandoned portion of Manley in front of the house is part of the parcel. Under the Keenan Amendments, even with the City deeding the property, the City has first right of refusal when the property sells; the owner can’t build on the property and it remains as easement for utilities.

Willoughby plans to convert the residential structure into a retail type business selling motorcycle parts and accessories. Morris told planners they were bringing this forward before asking for approval for a site plan to determine any issues. She said Willoughby has been informed he would have to provide a certain number of parking spots and maneuvering area within the lot. Morris said the big question is whether the access to the property would be sufficient from a planning standpoint.

Willoughy will likely bring a site plan back to the planning commission in the near future for more discussion and action.

Paris, Tenn.- February’s Henry County Board of Education meeting was held at E.W. Grove School Thursday evening and Principal Tim Mason along with some teachers and students gave a report about Grove.

Mr. Mason went over the school improvement plan and he said Grove’s need to was increase student’s mastery of English Standards, focus on more rigorous math, and improve our school culture.

In English I, the goal was to increase mastery by 6%. Heavier emphasis has been on drawing inferences, citing strong compelling evidence from what they’ve read, and develop key ideas. The RTI program provides intervention for struggling students to increase their vocabulary and reading level.

Algebra I goals was to show a 10% increase in one of the levels scored. Algebra teachers meet once a week and discuss any issues students have had and how they can help students come up with different strategies to help students succeed.

Grove is also focused on improving culture and communications between students, staff, and the entire school. One thing they are doing is filming videos with teachers and students on different things such as good attitudes. The school is also aiming at increasing communications with parents. Mr. Mason sends out parent emails, they have sent home contact forms, and they’ve increased the use of social media and the school’s website.

Mr. Mason said some new classes were offered this year and students from each of those courses discussed what they’ve learned. The classes are: AP Human Geography, which is the study of impact humans have on the earth; Computer Science Foundations, which studied the beginning of the internet; and Creative Writing, where students use personal feelings in their writings.

HCSS To Implement AVID Systems to Get More Students into Post Secondary Education

Daniel Armstrong speaks on the AVID system. (Alsobrooks photos)

Paris, Tenn.- Daniel Armstrong, Director of 4-8th Grade Curriculum and Instruction, gave a presentation of AVID Systems to the Board on Thursday night. Armstrong said we feel like if a child is academically capable to get an education after high school they should be able to do that if they are willing and able. So the question remains, why kids are falling thru the cracks.

He said about 30% of students who have scored between a 21-26 on the ACT didn’t seek further education after high school, be it a four year, two year, or technical degree, in 2015-16 and the subgroups are hit the hardest in these areas.

The AVID system seems to be the best way to help close the gaps. First it bridges the support system gap, then bridges the resiliency gap. He said we have to get them there and make sure they don’t give up when they get there an AVID can help.

It starts with the teachers in the classrooms and using the strategies with AVID and then a school team helps spread the instructional framework thru the rest of the students.

Armstrong said “we will send a team of 8 people to AVID National this summer to learn the framework and focus on the elective at Grove in year one, year two we spread to the High School, and year three we step back and strengthen what we need too. We want to finally give this kids the courage to do things they never would have done on their own. We want to also push students take those AP classes and honors classes who might not strive to succeed in them otherwise.”

System-Wide Teachers of the Year Honored

Paris, Tenn.- Director of Schools Dr. Brian Norton officially recognized the teachers of the year for each school and district wide. Dr. Norton said we have an all-star faculty. Teachers of the Year District-wide was Heather French for Pre-K thru 3rd grade. She serves at Kindergarten teacher at Harrelson. For grades 4-8th the District Teacher of the year was Valerie Godina at Henry. The teacher of the year for 9-12th grade is Joey Hampton, math teacher at HCHS.

The board approved an easement request from Henry County EMA to install a tower and small building on property owned just above Grove Hill. Dr. Norton said the tower won’t be on any property we are currently using or have plans to use.

Board Hears Facilities Updates on Bus Garage/Maintenance Bld.

Paris, Tenn.- Maintenance Director John Akers gave a report to the Board of Education on current facilities projects. He said all concrete is poured and metal trim is on half the building at the maintenance building and bus garage. He said it should be ready in another month or 6 weeks.

Drawings will be complete for the gym on the high school project on Friday. Akers said they have a floor type picked out and developed design drawings for the library and front entrance later in February. Cost estimates would come down the road and everything is moving along well.

U-Trust Grant Monies Used to Award Teacher Perfect Attendance

Paris, Tenn.- In his report, Dr. Norton said U-Trust works with the board to help give unused monies to them, but the funds must be used in certain ways. He said this year I’ve decided to use some of the funds for attendance incentives. The U-Trust grant allowed the system to give out some bonuses for employees who have perfect attendance for January and February.

Dr. Norton said Governor Haslam has promised on adding extra funds to teacher salaries and other things. In his tenure, Governor Haslam has added over $1B to education in Tennessee.

Dr. Norton spoke on closing schools for illness. He said there isn’t a specific guideline when it comes to closing schools but we continuously monitor of our students and staff’s absences He said we have a nurse in each school that ensures if kids are sick, we send them home. But so far, we’ve managed to stay in good shape.

Parks Dept. Increases Fees For For-Profit Tournaments

Parks Dept. members discuss fees at Monday's meeting. (Tim Alsobrooks photo)

Paris, Tenn.- The Paris Parks and Recreation Board met in regular session Monday evening and Parks Director Tony Lawrence informed the board that they are interested in raising the fees this year for for-profit baseball and softball tournaments. The current fee is $55 and after some searching around, Lawrence said areas close to us are charging $100 per field per day. He said we decided to raise our price starting this year from $55 to $100 on these for-profit tournaments. Lawrence said at this time we’re not looking to charge cleaning fees or staff fees but this increase will help us recoup some of our cost.

Lawrence said there are so many of these families that are bringing items with them to eat and drink and not really going out to our restaurants as much because the tournaments themselves are costly. He said we have staff and security on hand anyway for these tournaments so this increase won’t matter much as far as that goes. The board approved the motion of raising the fees.

Lawrence said Owen’s Construction was the low bid for the renovations at the Ogburn Park basketball courts. The Paris Public Works Department is providing some gravel and grade work prior to pouring the concrete. The project will include new lights, goals, and backboards. He said the weather hasn’t cooperated lately but perhaps this week they can get some of the work done and be finished by spring. The plan is still for two basketball courts and Lawrence said they will be really nice.

The Parks and Recreation board heard a report on the Paris Swim Team at Monday’s meeting. The team finished up their season in Tunica on Sunday with a 2nd place overall finish out of 14 teams.

Lawrence reported that the Parks Department has applied for a Health Department Grant for an exercise playground. The playground is intended for the Eiffel Tower park extended on the same side of the road as Paris Elementary. Lawrence said we have several ideas for that side of the Paris with the pond and hopefully this comes thru to help start the process. They will know more on the grant later on this summer.

The TWRA has finished their stocking program for the season as 500 rainbow trout were placed in the pond twice this year. The board also learned the repairs to the Civic Center pool are now complete and the humidifier is working well.

Lawrence informed the board that the department is trying to enact some regulations for cemeteries, similar to what HillCrest had in place before the City of Paris took it over. He told the Parks Board he and staff are drafting a policy and will present it to the City Commission next month for review and eventual passage.
