Newark School Board meeting, Nov. 18, 2020

November 21, 2020

 The Newark Board of Education meeting was not accessible to the public due to a recent positive case of COVID-19 at the High School.

The meeting was called to order as usual with the Pledge of Allegiance and approval of the minutes of the previous meeting (11/4). 

The Board was able to formally announce the selection of a new Assistant Principal for the Kelley School, and then discuss the experience of the selection process with Margot LaCure, who seemed very excited to accept her new role.

Public Comments were available to be submitted via email to  dennis.ford@newarkcsd.org or Russell.harris@newarkcsd.org.  

Board President Harris noted that the Superintendent Search continues to be underway with surveys available to the public on a variety of social media platforms and the school website.

There was not a Legislative Committee Meeting, but President Harris noted that there is a letter-writing campaign for the reinstatement of transportation funding.

The Four County Committee was discussed, noting how the 20% reduction in State Aid will disproportionately impact poorer than wealthier districts. 

There was robust discussion of the best methods and timing for effectively communicating with the public the possible significant impacts of COVID, and related budgetary issues across many domains stretching from SROs to advanced coursework availability to extra-curricular activities. 

The Board engaged in the first reading of the Suspension of Students Policy, which it ultimately approved.

Assemblyman Brian Manktelow plans to attend the next Board of Education meeting. The Board then returned to Executive Session for matters of Board evaluation.  

The next meeting of the Board of Education is 12/2 at 7:00 pm.
