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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
