Superintendent Dr. Michael LaSusa will introduce guiding principles for the School District of the Chathams at Monday's Board of Education meeting.
"The guiding principles are similar to a set of mission or belief statements about the school district. We developed them over time through the administration and board," LaSusa said.
A list of the principles was not immediately available, but the agenda shows they will be recommended by the Policy and Planning Committee.
The board will have to vote on whether to approve the principles.
The board will also vote on whether to approve several personnel items, including the resignation of Lana Boyle, a paraprofessional at Southern Boulevard School, and a contract for Mary Morano, a paraprofessional at Chatham High School.
Two other items, if approved by the board, will terminate custodian Michael Harding from his position at Chatham High and Lafayette Avenue School and approve the resignation of Seaen Sanders from Milton Avenue School.
There are also several donations up for approval by the Board of Education Monday, including a donation of $350 from the Southern Boulevard PTO for materials for grade 1 teachers, and a grant of $9,942 from the Chatham Education Foundation for a digital piano, math and vocabulary materials and three document cameras, all for Southern Boulveard.
First Choice Loan Services will also donate $2,500 for the Tech Club at Chatham High, if the board approves the donation.
The Board of Education meets at 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Chatham Township Municipal Building. A full copy of the agenda can be found attached to this article.
