The Putnam EDGE High School board of directors met Monday, November 10, 2014, in a special called meeting at the invitation of St. Johns River State College. The purpose of the meeting was for SJRSC executives to express an interest in establishing a collegiate high school and to determine interest by the Putnam EDGE school board in pursuing further discussions along those lines.
Key points of discussion: • EDGE Board is open to discussing opportunities when the college is ready.
We are continuing our plans for the College Rd Property in preparation for the 2015‐2016 school year.
• Putnam EDGE has just begun its second year with a maximum enrollment and is enjoying the beginning of an excellent school year. The board is always interested in considering opportunities that could lead to improved educational opportunities for our students.
• Students will be allowed to attend college classes in accordance to board guidelines. Currently these opportunities are available but could be expanded.
• President Pickens and Dr. Brown will present the possibility of establishment of a collegiate high school to SJRSC Board of Directors.
• The conversation was purely exploratory. No votes were taken nor decisions made other than to further evaluate the question and continue discussion.
During a discussion with Putnam EDGE board members expressed gratitude to the college for its interest and agreed to continue the conversation.
