| Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2012, 10:36 p.m.

The Hampton Township School District Board of School Directors elected its president and vice president and set the meeting schedule during its annual reorganization meeting last week.

The board unanimously re-elected David Gurwin as president and elected Bryant Wesley as vice president.

School board member Mary Alice Hennessey previously held the position of vice president.

Wesley was appointed as board member in January 2011 to complete the unexpired term of Harold Sarver and then won the election to fill a vacant board position.

Gurwin thanked his fellow board members for electing him to another yearlong term as president of the board.

“I feel unbelievably fortunate to serve with a group of smart, dedicated people who care about the school district,” he said.

In the coming weeks, Gurwin said, he will make new committee assignments in time for the January meeting.

The board also established the meeting schedule for 2013, which will maintain the current framework for the meeting time and place.

The work sessions will be scheduled for the first Monday of the month at 7 p.m. and the voting meetings will be held on the second Monday of the month at 7:30 p.m.

The fourth Monday of the month will be reserved as an optional special meeting ,if needed.

All meetings will be held in the Dr. Harold Sarver Memorial Library in the middle school at 4589 School Drive unless otherwise announced.

One exception to the schedule will be in September, during which time the work session will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 3, because Monday is Labor Day.

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.
