Brentwood officials discuss summer camp
Plans are being made for the annual Brentwood Summer Day Camp.
Brentwood Borough School Board members plan to vote on Monday, authorizing this year's program, with a net budget of $13,228. The program is financed by both the school district and Brentwood Borough, officials said.
Superintendent Ronald Dufalla said that last year the program came in under budget and hopes are that this year it will do the same.
School board members also plan to vote on Monday to authorize Dufalla to accept student teachers, observers and nursing students for the 2013-14 school year.
The number of students applying for the positions has increased during the last several years, Dufalla said. They now are applying for positions in Brentwood from universities and colleges farther away from Brentwood.
School officials in Brentwood attempt to keep the number of acceptances within reason, Dufalla said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
