School strategic plan

A new Clarkston Community Schools Strategic Plan will be up for discussion at the Aug. 26 school board meeting.

The plan focuses on student performance and program evaluation, finance and personnel, and infrastructure, which includes wireless technology upgrades.

The school board meets at 7 p.m. at the Administration Building, 6389 Clarkston Road.

No oil drilling yet

Pat Gibson, vice president of West Bay Exploration said no drilling for natural resources, like oil and gas, is taking place yet in Independence Township.

"We are still in the process of purchasing leases in the area and some seismic work also has to be completed so the company can gain a better understanding of what natural resources are beneath the ground," said Gibson.

Township cable

committee disbanded

Independence Township Board recently voted to disband a citizen committee formed to oversee Independence Television (ITV) after an agreement was reached between the township and Clarkston Community Schools.

The agreement moves the local public access station from a Maybee Road studio to Clarkston High School.

Township Supervisor Pat Kittle thanked the six-member board.

"They successfully accomplished all the goals that were set forth by the township," said Kittle.

He expressed hope the members will consider serving on a new joint township/school committee currently being appointed.

"I would love to see some of the current members on the new board," said Township Trustee David Lohmeier.
