Gainesville school board plans Enota traffic update
Placeholder Image
GAINESVILLE — Gainesville school system administrators plan to give an update Monday night on traffic at Enota Multiple Intelligences Academy.

Principal Sally Meadors and Keith Vincent, the district’s maintenance and transportation director, are set to discuss how traffic is faring at the school since making some changes to the parking lot and pick-up/drop-off area behind the school and near the gymnasium.

Parents had complained about slow-moving traffic and risks to pedestrians on East Enota Avenue and outside the school after the front parking lot was closed late last year to car traffic during pick up and drop off.

Only buses are allowed in the front lot during those times.

Changes were made March 3 to address the problem, and Meadors and Vincent are expected to give an update on conditions at the Gainesville City Board of Education’s monthly meeting.

Also, board members had asked Meadors and Vincent to look at the possibility of building a raised pedestrian crosswalk across the front parking lot.

The meeting is set to begin at 7 p.m. and will take place in the system’s central offices at 508 Oak St.

Also on the agenda:

Discussion of a new ethics code. New board member Sammy Smith has spent the past couple of weeks drafting the code.

A report from Gainesville High School campus principal Mike Kemp and athletic director Wayne Vickery on gate receipts.

Discussion of a "crisis safety plan" prepared by Chris Mance, principal of Gainesville High’s Civil International Academy.

Hearing from Kemp on Gainesville High’s participation in the Advanced Placement program.
