What Next?

Courier News reporter Brandon Lausch quotes Interim Schools Superintendent Peter Carter as saying he can't continue working with the school board. It made me wonder how things came to this pass. My blog reports in June covered the past turmoil with Paula Howard and the warm reception Carter enjoyed. See these reports here and here.

Going through the June 2006 reports also reminded me that the city's self-declared deadline to get the web site in order passed June 30. It still is not upgraded. June was also the month when Public Safety Director Martin Hellwig announced his plan to reorganize the Police Division without a chief. The proposal blind-sided Police Chief Edward Santiago, who was in the room but knew nothing of the plan.

There was another June blog post on the difficulty of following the school board's meeting schedule. Click here to see it. Residents will have to pay attention in coming weeks to see what becomes of the district's leadership situation. Tonight's work-and-study session is 8 p.m. at Plainfield High School. See you there.
