Last night the existing School Committee met, presumably for the last time, prior to next Tuesday’s town election.
Following a predictably tearful farewell from the current Chair following a period of turmoil and failure unseen in recent memory, the Committee went into Executive Session.
However, when the committee returned from Executive Session, it voted on only one item – item D, the ratification of the memorandum of agreement with SEIU local 888.
This leaves open to question what the plan is for dealing with the future of acting Superintendent of Schools Sheryl Stanton.
The Committee failed to either affirm the vote to extend her contract or to approve a contract for an additional year of service.
Also, the Committee failed to approve the presentation requesting new athletic positions for the 2015-16 school year.
Barring an unexpected meeting of the Committee prior to July 1st, it looks as though Ms. Stanton’s future is up in the air pending the election of a new School Committee.
