Meeting Update

The Board of Education meeting tomorrow night (Thursday, Nov. 15, 2007) will include an executive session at 6:30 p.m. in the Plainfield High School Conference Room to discuss "personnel, legal/contracts" according to a legal notice today and then an 8 p.m. special meeting to establish board goals and to discuss personnel, legal/contracts. Formal action may be taken, the notice states.

The school board has received a joint letter of resignation from three top interim administrators who were hired after former Schools Superintendent Paula Howard submitted her resignation in June. The board accepted Howard's resignation within days and replaced her with Interim School Superintendent Peter E. Carter. Interim School Business Administrator/Board Secretary Michael Donow and Interim Assistant Superintendent Walter Rusak, also the interim principal at Plainfield High School, state their intention to resign effective Dec. 31 over issues of compensation, according to press reports.

The leak of the resignation letter set off more tumult, as reported in Plaintalker earlier today.
