Special Town Meeting Update
Congratulations to Dusty Rhodes and the members of the Weston 300 Committee who were honored for their outstanding work in planning and overseeing a year of celebrations. The members included many current or former Weston Public School parents: Dusty Rhodes (Chair), Diana Chaplin, Robin Peakes Coutts, Mark L. Curelop, Elizabeth B. Eaton, Deirdre Freiberg, Elizabeth R. Hochberger, Aubrey Kief, Douglas MacDougall, Lee Marsh, Marion B. Packs, and Rev. Dr. Thomas D. Wintle.
Article I to amend the FY14 school budget by adding $230,000 to cover unforeseen special education costs passed. School Committee Chair Danielle Black introduced the article and presented a clear rationale for the need to increase the budget at this time. Parent Christen Lacey rose to speak on behalf of special education and did an outstanding job of outlining both the legal and the ethical reasons as to why supporting this request was the right thing to do.
Article II to fund the continuation of improvements to the Case Campus also passed. As Ed Heller noted in his presentation, these funds will be utilized first and foremost to improve safety for pedestrians and traffic by: widening Alphabet Lane, improving traffic flow at the pool area, creating sidewalks, and designing safer drop off and pick up at Woodland School.
Thank you to all who attended Town Meeting.
Dr. Cheryl Maloney
Superintendent of Schools
