The Lakewood Board of Education has scheduled a Special Board Meeting on Friday, June 8, as they fill two positions. Following the executive session, the board will appoint current interim Business Administrator Ms. Arlene Biesiada to a one year term as B.A./B. S..
Additionally, the board will appoint Ms. Laura Winters as Interim Superintendent of Schools, replacing Ms. Lydia Silva. Both positions will be effective July 1, 2012.
The public meeting begins at 9AM. TLS.
Laura Winters is a very capable person.If she gets the full staff support it will be good for Lakewood.
The new BOE is moving ahead with STABILIZATION, prior to the September start of school.
Now, the BOE needs to reach an accord with teachers and administrators, in order to stabilize that situation. Teachers have much to offer, as have daily encounters with the students. Stabilization cannot be accomplished without them.
Go BOE, you are awesome…
I know of Ms. Arlene Biesiada from my work in the Public School Districts. She is a very courteous person.
Her performance will speak for itself. It is a good thing that Ms. Silvas position is replaced, but look forward to having a more experienced Superintendent who understands the needs of Latino Students, best practices in rebuilding the school climate and turnaround prunciples. Time tells all.
Please note that although these items may be on the agenda, the board’s majority will still need to vote favorably for it to take effect.
before an agenda is posted you should verify the facts.
Ms. Winters’ appointment is on the agenda for tomorrow’s meeting, but there’s no mention of Ms Biesiada.
Ms Laura Winters was appointed Interim Superintendent at the BOE Meeting. There was no item on the agenda for Ms. Arlene Biesiada, and no action was taken.
It is my hope that the BOE and Ms. Biesiada come to terms in the near term.
There will also be a meeting of the BOE and the Teachers today to discuss next steps leading to an agreement and settlement. Teachers are key to success in the district.
Nice work BOE. Stabilization is key to enable the Lakewood School District to move ahead.
