SPRINGFIELD, NJ - The Board of Education public meeting was delayed by a closed session matter. The public meeting began with the Superintendent’s report. The Superintendent received notification about the Student Space Experiment Program (SSEP). He said, “The spaceship has successfully returned to earth and the experiment has been retrieved. The data will be shipped to the school to be compared and contrasted with the earth experiment here in the media center."
On another topic Mr Davino reported that the school calendar has two extra snow days that if unused would be added to the spring break and to lengthen Memorial Day weekend. The days to be taken off in this case would be April 17 at the end of spring break, and May 26 the Friday before Memorial Day.
Under new business, Board President Robin Cornelison announced that Hilary Turnbull would replace Steven Wolcott on the Policy Committee. Scott Silverstein reminded the Board that "Legally Blonde" is the spring musical and performances are scheduled March 30, 31, April 1 and 2. Tickets can be purchased at the high school.
Mr. Silverstein then introduced a resolution. The resolution was read regarding a residency issue with a student. It was brought to the attention of the Superintendent that the student did not reside in Springfield. An expert was hired to investigate and the finding was that the student in fact did not reside in Springfield. A hearing was held by the Board. The evidence was reviewed and it was decided by the Board that the student did not reside in the district. Unless appealed the student would have to be removed within 21 days.
Having no further business the meeting was adjourned.
