This is part of an email sent out by Cathy Belcher this afternoon:
Hello Board members,
Please find below an update of items relative to facilities and preparing for the opening of school.
As of 1:50 this afternoon, no news has been received from the courts. Dr. Metzler has directed that we proceed as planned, and the moving of programs and materials is scheduled to begin tomorrow under the guidance of Jim Hughes. They will begin at 7:00 am at Sandown Central and will provide updates to the Superintendent throughout the day. The move is anticipated to take two days.
I would have thought the school board would have something to say about this given the legal limbo we currently find ourselves in, but once again we are completely out of the loop. If it isn’t evident by now, the school board is superfluous to the functioning of the school district. We might as well be on Mars…oh, but wait, some checks still need authorizations…so we are invited into the SAU for a quick meaningless signature on faith …and then there’s awarding raises to the SAU. Well, I guess I’m wrong once again: the board is not superfluous.
The remainder of the email was an update on the middle school transformer project now completed and the press booth still under construction.
