The Region 1 Board of Education, after approving the 20182019 calendar Monday, realized the local school boards that comprise the region hadn’t seen it.
Falls Village representative Patricia A. Mechare noted after the vote that “maybe we should take a step back.” She said in the past the other boards looked at it and expressed any concerns or made suggestions before the Region 1 board took action.Superintendent Pamela Vogel acknowledged the administrators had seen it, but not the other board members. Vogel said in the past two years, the other boards haven’t voted on the calendar.Mechare said she wasn’t saying they should vote on it, “but I think as a courtesy they should get to look at it.”When Assistant Superintendent Lisa Carter said traditionally the Region 1 board approves it and then it goes back to the local boards for input, Mechare said: “That seems kind of backward to me.”Salisbury’s Jennifer Weigel agreed it needed to go back to the other boards. The proposal will be presented to all the other boards for recommendations.Because the Lee H. Kellogg board in Falls Village already met, Vogel will send the calendar to each board member and ask for opinions. If there are amendments to be made, the Region 1 board will make them at its February meeting.
