Middletown BOE: What's on the Agenda

Tonight is William George's first meeting as superintendent

Tonight is a first for new Middletown Township Schools Superintendent William George.

It is the first meeting over which he will be presiding, at the helm of the nine-member board dais, at 7:30 p.m. in the library of Middletown High School North, Tindall Road.

George’s start date was Dec. 1.  While he has already conducted a series of casual coffee klatch-type gatherings with parents in his first couple of weeks on the job, tonight’s regular voting meeting is his first as superintendent.

On tonight’s agenda, there are approvals of, leaves of absence, hires, re-hires and three resignations.

George is also slated to recommend that the board accept a grant donation check of $25,000 for the River Plaza and Nut Swamp schools Parent-Teacher Faculty associations. The money comes from the Edward W. and Stella C. Van Houten Memorial fund and is to go to the revamping of the schools’ libraries and new books.

Also on the agenda is the slated approval a student from the Highlands school system to attend Middletown district schools at a tuition cost of $44,891 a year, which is the estimated per pupil cost in the district, according to the agenda.

James Cody, a new board member is also now sworn in and sitting on the dais. Patch will find out more about Cody tonight.

Then, of course, there is the public portion of the meeting, wherein a variety of issues may arise.
