MADISON, NJ – In a brief meeting on Tuesday, July 24, the Board of Education approved a number of appointments, donations and other business matters.
 
Board President Lisa Ellis commented on the death of former coach Bob Chandler. “It was sad for the district,” she said. “He was a force of nature.”
Board member Kevin Blair said he reflected on Madison as a “great town. The Old Guard came to the wake or the funeral.” He recalled one tribute regarding the coach, “He yelled at a lot of kids, but now they want to say thank you for it. He had an influence across the generations.”
 
Linda Gilbert, another board member, thanked the Torey J. Sabatini PTO for its donation of field renovations and hardscaping. “It was hard work,” she said. The Madison Community Garden members donated to renovate the science court yard at the high school. Superintendent of Schools Michael Rossi said the work was beginning that day.
 

Among the appointments were two part-time custodians, Louis Ammirato and Luis Feliz for the high school.  Extra curricular appointments were made for field hockey, cross country, girls’ basketball and soccer. The board adopted a resolution regarding the contract of Superintendent of Schools, establishing criteria and merit bonuses for the 2011-2012 school year. Those determinations are then submitted to the Executive County Superintendent of Schools.
 
The board is scheduled to meet again on Tuesday, Aug. 21.
