The Board of Education met May 19. Here is a summary.
- The Board approved the results of Tuesday’s election, thanking the community for its support and coming out to vote.
- The Board approved the hiring of Kevin McCaffery as a Technical Services Coordinator. Mr. McCaffery will provide additional Informational Technology support as the department manages a growing number of devices and increased cyber security needs. The hire also allows for a technician to be placed at Jefferson Elementary full-time.
- Board member Kevin Thompson thanked Miranda Eldridge and Daniel Mac Entee for running for the Board of Education. Mr. Thompson noted that while they did not win Board seats in the election, their willingness to serve the district is “a win” for Schalmont and a great example of the community’s interest in volunteering to be involved and help the district.
The next Board of Education meeting will be Monday, June 7 at 7:00 p.m. We will share details about how the public can join virtually closer to the meeting date.
