Elizabeth Forward sets special meeting

Friday, Nov. 22, 2013, 1:56 a.m.
 

Two outgoing members of Elizabeth Forward School District's board of directors will have one more meeting before their terms expire.

The district said on Thursday that a special meeting would be held for general purposes on Monday night at 7.

It likely will be the last meeting for directors Robert Rhoderick Jr., who ran successfully for Elizabeth Township commissioner, and Mary Scarry.

Scarry was edged out on Nov. 5 by incumbent Dorothy Wycoff, newcomer Francis Posa, incumbent Scott McVicker and newcomer Jamie O. Evans.

At Wednesday's meeting board president Philip Martell and Solicitor Pat McGrail thanked Scarry and Rhoderick for their service.

Martell and district Superintendent Bart Rocco gave Assistant Superintendent Todd Keruskin a certificate honoring him for his efforts to develop the Dream Factory learning space at the middle school.

The board is to reorganize on Dec. 3.

Among the loose ends still to be tied up this fall is a contract with the Elizabeth Forward Education Association, though both the district and the teachers union have accepted a state fact-finder's recommendations.

McGrail said talks were continuing with EFEA regarding contract language.
