continued When reached for comment, board of education president Steve Trombley said there has been no discussion among board members to reverse the principal swap.
“It is clear to us now that the board is unwilling to revisiting the swap. It is a bad decision and we will have to live with,” said Sharoni. “What we need to ensure is that future decisions will be consistent with board policy and that a rationale for them will be shared with the community.”
Sharoni added the coalition plans to be in attendance at the next meeting of the board of education, scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 12, in the high school library. The meeting will begin at 6:15 p.m.
“The community mobilized to voice its disagreement with the principles swap. We need to keep people inform and involved,” said Sharoni. “This is one key way to continue to hold the board accountable and to build the capacity, skills, and confidence of people that would be willing to run for board positions in the next elections.”
