1. Decision to put an article on the town warrant for the October town meeting to create a Committee to explore Regionalization, and
2. Decision about reconfiguring the Pelham School Committee.
2. Announcements and Public Comments
Trevor Baptiste, Pelham parent and resident, stated that he is against Pelham School pursuing Regionalization because he believes there are enough resources to explore in Pelham.
3. New Business
A. Article on the town warrant for the October town meeting to create a Committee to explore Regionalization—Ms. Weilerstein stated that tonight’s vote is not about whether or not to regionalize. However, it is in the best interest of the Town of Pelham to explore whether there could be a regionalization agreement that is in the best interest of the school. Ms. Weilerstein made a motion to submit the following article to be put on the warrant for town meeting:
Shall the Town of Pelham form a Regional School District Planning Committee (RSDPC), consisting of three (3) members, one of whom must be a member of the school committee as per M.G.L. Chapter 71, Sections 14, 14A and 14B. The RSDPC may choose to join with a corresponding Committee(s) from another town(s) to form a Regional School District Planning Board (the Board). The purpose of the Board is to perform a detailed exploration of and recommendation as to forming a Regional School District for our K-6 school.
Ms. Foley seconded and the motion was unanimously approved.
B. Reconfiguring the Pelham School Committee—Ms. Gould made a motion that she and Ms. Foley serve as the Pelham representatives to the Amherst-Pelham Regional School Committee. Ms. Weilerstein seconded and the motion was unanimously approved.
