The Brookline School Board met at 8 a.m. on June 10th at CSDA with Superintendent Pike.

The Resignation of the part time Nurse Susan Patz at RMMS was accepted with regret on motion by Cindy and second by Marcia - all voted in favor.

Discussion followed regarding whether to hire one full time nurse or to continue with a .6 nurse and a .4 nurse. 

The Board discussed all options and decided on having two positions.  Should the .4 nurse apply for the .6 position that would be to the satisfaction of the board.  The board decided on a 3  to 2 vote to affect this change. (motion by Cindy, 2nd by Marcia, yes 3, Marcia, Cindy, Dave, 2 no - Beth, Wanda.

Wanda Meagher had to leave to go to work at this point


The motion to accept the resignation of assistant principal Kevin Stone with regret was made by Beth, 2nd by Cindy and unanimous vote.


The superintendent nominated Virginia Commisso for the position of .5  kindergarten teacher at a salary of $24,207.50.  The Board accepted his nomination by unanimous vote


The Assistant principal search will get underway ASAP with Dave Partridge serving as the board representative to the committee.  The committee has an ambitious time schedule hoping to review resumes on the 23rd and interview on the 24th and 25th, hoping to have a new person in place by the 2nd or 3rd week of July.


Respectfully submitted,

Marcia Farwell
