No Agreement Yet Between School Board and Manchester Mayor and Aldermen

city schoolsThursday night’s joint meeting of the Manchester Board of Education and Board of Mayor and Aldermen (BOMA) ended without a clear agreement on the city’s next step regarding a possible transfer of schools.
Interim schools director Sandra Morris, who is serving the schools while Dr. Keith Brewer is on medical leave, predicted the dire consequences of a transfer referendum.
Alderman Lana Sain was quick to confirm the quality of education offered by the system, but challenged the overall wisdom of having three separate systems in the county.
Cuts in administration is said to be the large portion of $1.2 million that the board of education foresees reducing in the 2015-16 school budget, but the details of the cuts were not given.
No official decision has been made on the referendum issue. (Thanks to the Manchester Times)
