By: Dwayne Page

Based on the high overall ratings awarded by the Board of Education in a recent performance review, Principal of Schools Patrick Cripps has been granted a one-year contract extension.


At Monday night’s regular monthly meeting, the board voted 6-0 to grant the extension. Those who voted for were President Shaun Tubbs, Vice President Jim Beshearse and fellow members Danny Parkerson, Kate Miller, Alan Hayes and Jamie Cripps. Jason Miller was absent.

Cripps’ annual salary will remain at $98,000, but he will be entitled to the same salary increases the Commission will give to all laid-off employees in the future.

Cripps’ contract was to run until June 30, 2023, but with the one-year extension, he will now serve as manager until at least June 30, 2024. Cripps has served as manager since July 2015.

The results of the school board’s annual performance appraisal of Principal Cripps show that he is meeting “most” of the board’s expectations.

The average overall Cripps score is 4.40 out of a possible score of 6.

According to state law, the school board is required to develop and implement an evaluation plan for use annually by the principal of schools. Board members used a four-page evaluation form to rate Director Cripps (1-6) in each of 60 areas across eight categories, including his relationship to the board, community, staff and staff , Educational Leadership, Business and Finance, Personal Suitability, Strategic Planning Skills, and Tennessee-Specific Issues.

A grade of “1” meant that his performance was “consistently below expectations”. A “5” rating meant that Cripps “met all expectations.” A note with an asterisk

The symbol or 6 meant that it “exceeded expectations”.

The other notes were:

“2”-meets few expectations

“3”-meets certain expectations

“4” – meets most expectations

Each member of the jury scored Cripps in all areas of the categories on the form. The scores were then averaged to arrive at the total score. Completed forms were sent to officials at the Tennessee School Boards Association where the scores were compiled and averaged.

In the overall assessment report, Cripps received the highest score (4.70) in “board relations”. He got the lowest score (3.96) in the “Tennessee-specific questions.”
A breakdown of Cripps’ scores in the eight-goal assessment was:

Average performance targets
Council Relations

4.70
Community relations

4.41
Staff and Staff Relations

4.41
Pedagogical direction

4.38
Business and finance

4.67
Personal qualities

4.61
Strategic planning skills

4.10

in other cases, Director Cripps made his monthly personnel report.

SINGAPORE, May 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — With the number of video players in Singapore should hit 3 million by 2026, video and mobile games have touched the lives of many internet users, serving as a conduit for making meaningful social connections and a platform for cultivating prosocial behaviors. Against this landscape, Tencent possesses has partnered with local social enterprise SOOS OIO to host a series of parenting webinars, workshops and community gaming tournaments during this year’s Digital For Life festival, hosted by that of Singapore Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA).

SOOS OIO believes that video and mobile games serve not only as a social platform for building communities, but also as an educational medium to develop critical thinking and communication skills. “Play is an integral part of learning and we believe that video gaming is play on a different playing field. It provides development for every young person across cognitive, emotional and social aspects,” said Pauline Phoon, founder of SOOS OIO. “Misconceptions about games often stem from a lack of understanding of the nature of games and the benefits they can bring. With Tencentwe hope to educate parents and the community about Singapore about the different ways gaming can be harnessed for digital wellbeing, social and cognitive skills, and most importantly – as a way to connect with children.”

“We thank SOOS OIO, Tencent and all the partners for joining us in organizing the parenting workshops and community gaming tournaments during the first Digital for Life festival, allowing our young people to learn the importance of healthy play, while strengthening social bonds between family, friends and the community,” said Ms. low dawnCluster Director for Digital Readiness and the Digital for Life Program Office at IMDA.

I hope more parents can engage with their children on ways to incorporate play into a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

Through the various activities planned for the Digital For Life Festival 2022, Tencent and SOOS OIO hope to demystify gaming for parents, inspire young people to adopt healthy gaming habits, foster healthy family relationships through gaming, and realize the benefits of gaming for everyone.

Parenting Challenge Workshops: Communicating and Engaging Young Players at Home Through Role-Playing

As an extension of the webinar, participants put to use the theories and communication strategies learned through role-playing sessions on common scenarios in families. These hands-on sessions contextualized learnings and deepened participants’ understanding of theories through re-enactment in a safe environment.

TeleTrip Festival

Families and friends have teamed up to compete in a casual, community-based gaming tournament uniquely designed to be inclusive and fun for everyone. Two family game titles, brawl stars and Roblox: Super Striker League have been featured in telematches – albeit with a twist thanks to a special rewards system that celebrates myriad achievements, beyond the highest score.

Co-Founder of the Investment Platform for Women of Color: 2 Frequently Asked Questions https://endgradeinflation.org/co-founder-of-the-investment-platform-for-women-of-color-2-frequently-asked-questions/ Fri, 20 May 2022 14:45:58 +0000 https://endgradeinflation.org/co-founder-of-the-investment-platform-for-women-of-color-2-frequently-asked-questions/ Sharlea Brookes is the co-founder of Modern Blk Girl, a platform dedicated to building wealth for women of color. She says people often ask where to start investing and how much money they should start with. The first step is always to learn, says Brookes. Knowing more will help you fight your fears.

  • Sharlea Brookes is the co-founder of Modern Blk Girl, a platform dedicated to building wealth for women of color.
  • She says people often ask where to start investing and how much money they should start with.
  • The first step is always to learn, says Brookes. Knowing more will help you fight your fears.

When Sharlea Brookes was in high school, a friend opened her computer and brought up a five-figure portfolio. “He had invested his bar mitzvah money. That was my introduction to investing,” Brookes told Insider.

Now 26, Brookes is the co-founder of Modern Blk Girl, a digital platform dedicated to building wealth for women of color. Launched last year with her business partner, Tiffany James, Modern Blk Girl’s mission is to close the gender investment and racial wealth gaps and attract 500,000 women of color to the stock market.

“Our goal is to encourage young people to invest, to get them in that mindset, so they’re saving for that first car, for college. We want them to have a head start over the of those formative years,” Brookes said.

She says they are working to change the underrepresentation of black women in the stock market. Modern Blk Girl is an educational community that offers courses on investing. Her Free Teen University, an accelerated four-week financial literacy program for young women ages 14 to 19, teaches how to invest and navigate the stock market. Each student receives a cash wallet of $500 to start. At the end of the year, two people are selected to receive a $10,000 college scholarship. Ten young people are selected every two months to participate in the program.

Modern Blk Girl has grown its community to over 150,000 members and has helped women of color earn over $3.5 million in scholarships.

She shares some of the questions that keep coming up from community members and what she tells them, and what she tells women who are afraid to start investing.

The 2 most common questions she receives about investing

One of the most asked questions by the MBG community is: “Where to start?” said Brooks.

His answer ? “Look around you. What cell phone do you use, what car do you drive, what video games do your kids play? Invest in companies you know.”

“We’re quick to buy expensive handbags or spend money on vacation,” Brookes continues. “But we have to have an ownership mentality as opposed to a spending mentality. Okay, if you buy the bag, get rewarded for that purchase if you also own shares in the company that made the bag. There has a stock related to everything in your life.”

Another common question: “How much money should I start with?” Brookes says there’s no standard answer to that one. It really depends on the financial situation of the person. “You can start with a small amount, anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. We encourage people to use simulated trading before putting money in,” she says.

The first step to successful investing is to learn as much as possible

Many MBG members are first-time investors, and investing wasn’t a topic of conversation growing up. Brookes understands. She had some initial fears herself. “It was one thing when I was investing my summer camp money that I earned in high school, but when I started working it was another thing,” she said.

She tells those who are afraid that education is the best antidote to fear. “When you do your research, when you work, you will feel more confident.” That’s how she overcame her own fear: “The internet was my best friend,” she said, turning to sources including Yahoo, the Wall Street Journal and CNBC.

Plus, it drives home the fact that investing is not a short-term game. “Patience pays off,” she said. “People mistakenly think that if they invest and trade, they’ll be successful overnight. But that’s like thinking you go to school and after a course you’ve mastered the subject.”

She says learning can help make sense of a complicated world. “Big words can be confusing. Industry insiders need to be able to translate concepts when teaching the stock market so people understand them. That’s why we took off: we break things down,” says Brookes.

And, she adds, discipline is the key to successful investing. “You can’t be emotional. You need emotional discipline to be in the stock market. dig.”

When she started, she didn’t have the community that MBG offers. “We’re family. We’re kidding. We’re not just about finances, but this community is about spirituality and well-being. It’s a safe space to learn, to share,” Brookes says.

Changing people’s mindsets about money and investing isn’t easy, but Brookes doesn’t get tired of doing well. “We remember the big picture,” she says, and calls MBG’s work a blessing. “There is purpose in what we do. There is a movement to close the racial and generational wealth gap. Our legacy will be that we educated our community.”

If your home’s value has skyrocketed, congratulations. If you decide to sell, beware.

Financial adviser James Guarino says some clients don’t realize profits from the sale of homes are potentially taxable until their returns are prepared – and by then they may have spent the windfall or invested the money in another house.

“They’re not happy when they find out that Uncle Sam is not only going to tax this as a capital gain, but they’re also going to be exposed at the state level,” says Guarino, a CPA and certified financial planner in Woburn, Massachusetts.

Longtime homeowners who took advantage of previous tax rules, which allowed people to carry over gains from one house to another, may be in for a particularly unpleasant surprise. These old rules could trigger taxes even if you are under the current exemption limits of $250,000 per person.

Understanding how profits from home sales are calculated — and how you can legally reduce your tax bill — could save you money and stress if you plan to take advantage of today’s house price spike.

HOW THE TAX RULES HAVE CHANGED

Until 1997, home sellers did not have to pay tax on their profits if they bought another home of equal or greater value within two years. Additionally, people 55 and older could use a one-time exclusion to avoid paying taxes on up to $125,000 of home sale profits.

The Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 changed the rules so that instead of transferring profits to another home, homeowners could exclude up to $250,000 of profits from the sale of their home from their income. To qualify for the full exclusion, home sellers must have owned and lived in the home for at least two of the five years prior to the sale. Married couples could shelter up to $500,000.

These exclusion limits have not changed in 25 years, while home values ​​have nearly tripled. The median selling price of a home when the law was passed was $145,800, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. The median was $428,700 in the first three months of this year. The median means that half of the houses are sold for less and the other half for more.

Having a taxable gain on the sale of a home used to be relatively rare outside of high-end properties and high-cost cities, but that’s no longer true, financial advisers say.

WHY YOUR TAX BASE IS IMPORTANT

Your first step in determining your gain is to identify the amount you made from the sale. This is the selling price minus selling costs, such as real estate commissions. Then calculate your tax base. This is usually the price you paid for the home, plus some closing costs and improvements. The higher the base, the lower your potentially taxable profit.

Let’s say you made $600,000 from the sale of your home. You originally bought it for $200,000 and remodeled the kitchen for $50,000. You subtract that $250,000 from the $600,000 to get $350,000 in capital gains.

If you are single, you could exclude $250,000 of the gain and pay tax on the remaining $100,000. (Long-term capital gains are normally taxed at 15% federally, although a large enough profit could push you into the top 20% of capital gains. State tax rates vary.) If you are married and can exclude up to $500,000 of the gain, you owe no tax.

However, your tax base may be lower than the purchase price if you previously deferred the gain on the sale of a home, says CPA Mary Kay Foss of Walnut Creek, Calif. Say you sold a house before 1997 and made a profit of $175,000 in the new house – the one that cost you $200,000. Your home’s initial tax base would only be $25,000. Now, if you make $600,000 from the sale, your capital gain would be $525,000, even with the $50,000 kitchen remodel.

Other factors could increase your tax base and reduce your potentially taxable earnings. If you owned a house with a deceased spouse, for example, at least half of the base of the house would be “increased” or brought to market value at the time of your partner’s death. If you live in a community property state such as California, both halves of the house benefit from this increased tax base.

HOW TO REDUCE YOUR GAINS

Another way to build your base is home improvement. To be eligible, improvements must “add to the value of your home, extend its useful life, or adapt it to new uses,” according to IRS Publication 523, Selling Your Home.

Additions of rooms, updated kitchens and new number of plumbing; repairs or maintenance, such as painting, generally do not. You also can’t count upgrades that were later ripped out or replaced.

Door-to-door sellers should carefully review Publication 523 to understand what costs may reduce their earnings and keep records — such as receipts — in case they are audited, says Susan Allen, senior tax practices and ethics manager for the American Institute of CPAs.

“Be proactive in keeping your records, because we all know that if you come back 10 years later and you’re looking for something, it’s a lot harder to find,” Allen says.

UDUPI: “The Grand Pontiff of Pejawar, the late Sri Vishwesha Thirtha, was a beacon of light for all that Hindu dharma professes. In his lifestyle and mindset of absolute sacrifice, he spread the message that is needed to serve society. It is the blessings of Sri Krishna of Udupi that give me strength in life,” Union Finance and Trade Affairs Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said.
She was speaking after the inauguration of the Sri Krishna Balaniketana extension block in Kukkikatte on Saturday.
“I am sure that the children of this premise will receive the best guidance and lead a morally sound life. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to participate in this program. These are the kinds of things that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is thinking about, regarding the country’s students and children. I really appreciate you having good hands receiving calls 24/7 and following up with actions for the sake of the children, who are in desperate need of help,” the Minister said. .
During the time of the British Presidency, people used to travel to faraway places for higher education. However, after independence, the people of this region made this entire region comprising of Manipal, Udupi and Mangaluru the best educational center known today not only in India but in the whole world. As far as the quality of education in the private sector is concerned, this area stands out as an exemplary case. The people of this region are enterprising and they know what shortcomings this region suffers from. We have a lot to learn from this area,” she said.
Union Minister of State for Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare, Shobha Karandlaje, said the finance minister has contributed through her MPLAD fund to the development of Sri Krishna Balaniketana.
“Nirmala Sitharaman is a role model for all women in the country. It is not an easy task for a woman to become a Union Minister and manage various portfolios. She should also continue to be a member of Rajya Sabha of Karnataka in the future,” she said.

Mladá Boleslav, May 9, 2022 – Classes started today at the “42 Prague” educational institute in the Czech capital. The innovative didactic concept emphasizes continuous learning and the sustainable strengthening of social skills. In the future, 150 programmers will graduate from the educational institute every year.

By opening ’42 Prague’, we are creating the ideal conditions to actively approach and successfully shape the transformation of our business. The new training institute offers talented IT professionals the optimal conditions to acquire new knowledge and to develop and improve their skills. Thanks to its innovative didactic approach, the entire program is geared towards lifelong learning.


Maren Gräf, ŠKODA AUTO Board Member for People and Culture

“As one of the largest employers in the country, we are committed to strengthening the Czech Republic as an international high-tech location. Graduates of the ’42 Prague’ training institute will make a decisive contribution to the future digitization of our company, especially in the fields of software engineering, data analysis, robotics and intelligence artificial.


Christian Schenk, ŠKODA AUTO Board Member for Finance and IT

Initially, 150 software developers will prepare for new job descriptions and requirement profiles at the training institute co-founded by ŠKODA AUTO from September; in three years, 450 students should learn there. The didactic orientation of the institute is geared towards continuous learning and the strengthening of social skills. To this end, ’42 Prague’ relies on three different approaches. The first pillar is gamification, the progress of each student is measured in levels. In addition, students learn according to the concept of peer learning, collaborative learning and independent work. The third pillar is peer assessment, which involves learners correcting each other and thus fostering constructive discussions about project results.

The Czech Ministry of Industry and Trade has awarded the auspices of the educational institute for the year 2022, which shows the prestige of the project. ’42 Prague’ is headed by Daria Hvížďalová and is the third offshoot of the Group’s ‘School 42′ coder training network after ’42 Wolfsburg’ and ’42 Berlin’. Besides ŠKODA AUTO, other co-founding companies are, for example, Trask and Green:code. ’42 Prague’ cooperates with companies such as Digiteq Automotive or with local partners, such as Czechitas, and others.
