The Rochester school board meets tomorrow to review a draft of Superintendent Bolgen Vargas’s contract. Board members are expected to go into executive session, which is too bad; it could be an interesting discussion.
Vargas enjoys the support of the majority of the district’s teachers and union leader Adam Urbanski, as well as most board members. But the relationship between Vargas and a few board members has sometimes been chilly. It seems there’s a bit of frustration about the role of the school board and how involved it should be in the district’s day-to-day business. And there have been a few instances recently when board members have been in the dark about district announcements.
Tuesday night’s meeting will be at the district’s central office, 131 West Broad Street, at 5:30 p.m. – by Tim Louis Macaluso
