"AskThe Doctor" Lunch & Learn Dr. Nikki Gautreaux OB/GYN The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecolo- gists (ACOG) recently re- leased new guidelines on how oi'cen women should be tested for cervical cancer. Support- ed by the American Cancer Society, the new guidelines state that most women only need a Pap test every 3 to 5 years, rather than annually. However, there is a catch. Dr. Nikki Gautreaux, an OB/Gyn with Bayou Re- gional Women's Clinic, will address "New Guidelines in Women's Health" during the "Ask the Doctor" Lunch & Learn on Thursday, August 29, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Staff Develop- ment Classroom at Lane Regional Medical Center in Zachary. WCCA News by Ashley Wrice The first week back at school was an exciting time to share summer adven- tures. Many of our WCCA students attended sports camps, church camps and had wonderftfl family vaca- tions. Brandy Norwood, a senior at WCCA, traveled to Eu- rope as a part of the People to People Ambassador Pro- gram. From June 8-June 26, she visited Italy, Sicily and Greece. She said her favorite part was the stay in Rome. Mrs. Jane Simmons, the high school English teacher, reports that the seniors are digging deep into English lit- erature as they study how oral beginnings moved into the written stories we have today.

Scott presented the beard with a list of recom- mendations for hire for the coming school year. A portion of the recommendations was approved in open door ses- sion, but others were held for discussion in executive ses- sion. After the meeting Supt. Scott said that all recommen- dations presented, including teaching and coaching posi- tions, were approved by board vote. The board recognized Mary Ann Webb, a retired school teacher from West Fe- liciana Parish, La., who has been hired as a social studies teacher at WCHS. Ms. Webb gave her educational back- ground and reported that she has 33 years teaching experi- ence. On the recommendation of Supt. Scott, the board voted 5-0 to adopt a Speech, Lan- guage, Voice and Fluency Disorder Policy for the school district. In following with school district policy, the board ap- proved the move of a stu- dent to another school district where the student's parent is employed as a teacher. Supt. Scott presented the board with copies of the stu- dent handbook for the 2013- 2014 school year. Supt. Scott pointed out that the manual contained several changes in- cluding a state law that stu- dents must be in school at least 63% of a school day to be counted as present. '~Par- ents can no longer bring their children to school and then return a short time later and check them out and expect that they be marked as pres- ent for the school day," said Supt. Scott. Supt. Scott, continuing with his discussion of the stu- dent handbook, reported that another new school policy is that a student who cannot read at third grade level Hill not be promoted to the fourth grade no matter what grades they receive from their teach- er.

Scott said that he will give the principals at all schools printed copies of the employee handbook for pre- sentation to staff members. The handbook is also avail- able on the school district's website. "I was at all schools on the opening day of school, and I must say that I was not at all pleased with the way employ- ees were dressed," reported Supt. Scott. "We are going to enforce our dress code this year, and it will be up to the different principals to make sure that it is being followed at their respective schools." Supt. Scott did confirm that employees Hill be al- lowed to wear jeans on Fri- days. On motion by Boyd and seconded by beard member Fannie Bateaste, the two handbooks were approved as presented by a 5-0 vote.
