Jamestown School Committee Business Meeting: August 3, 2006

Consent Agenda : The committee approved the minutes of July 6 and the appointments of Robert Power as superintendent of schools; Michael Franco as assistant principal; and special educator Wendy Williams to replace Peg Wark, who is returning to the preschool. Outgoing Superintendent Kathy Sipala praised Dr. Power as a “supporter of students and a compromiser and idea person who will be a great advocate for the school department.” She described Mike Franco as a veteran teacher, team leader and coach whose experience with parents in a highly competitive environment will be “invaluable” in the role of assistant principal.

The next business meeting of the Jamestown School Committee will be on August 24. All meetings are held at 7 p.m. in the Lawn School Library.
