  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
