The Kingston Board of Education meeting is tomorrow Wednesday June 18, 2014 at Bailey Middle School. Principal Julie Linton will do a welcome after roll call at 6pm and then the board will go into executive session. The agenda does not list an expected time for public comment but it generally is 7pm.
The agenda is available here.
The architects are to present the final designs for the Kingston High School Capital project (the designs that will be submitted for New York State approval for the project later this summer).
I am wondering when the new Kingston High School principal will be announced? Dr. Manuel is basically done now (working both in D.C. and here this month) and totally done in Kingston the end of June. KHS students have left the building other than for regents and the ‘make-up’ half day of school on June 26 (assuming kids actually come in) so they will not meet the new principal until September and parents are pretty much done as well. As president of the KHS Parents Association, I had hoped for the opportunity for some sort of transition from one principal to the next.
The superintendent’s report also includes:
- Report Card Committee
- Middle School Schedules
- Real Estate Update
BOE92 to merge the Onteora and Kingston football teams for 2014/2015 caught my attention in light of a comment made by Assemblyman Kevin Cahill today at Common Sense Education Lobby Day that Onteora was going to only have 1 school/campus very soon (this was new news to the Onteora parents who were meeting with Assemblyman Cahill along with Kingston parents as part of the lobby day).
