Is this the local board policy or a state policy. It is my understanding after talking to folks that a school district (board) can not close schools without a plan presented and approved by PED.
As for evaluating the superintendant, the board hired him. Can he do wrong? Is it true they renewed his contract for two more years?
I don't know - just telling you what I found on the website. I believe you are right about PED having to approve a school closing - but if they had gone ahead and voted to do it I doubt that the PED would look beyond the fact the Harris recommended it and the board approved it. I also don't know about a contract renewal - gosh I hope not!

There are a lot of questions that need answers. We need to demand accountability.

Don't get too excited. Now that the schools are being left open, the punishment begins. The Holloman Elementary principal is getting moved to North School and the Holloman Middle School principal is now going to be expected to be principal to both schools. The Middle School was a fulltime job for her...where in the world is she going to find time for the Elementary school? The Primary and Intermediate schools have had to share the same principal for the last several years, which didn't work by the way, and now when the schools are joining together they have to go back to sharing a principal again. Geez!


OMG when will the whining stop!!! There have got to be less kids in those combined schools that at some of the elementary schools in town. The schools will be left open BE HAPPY
