NORWICH – Approximately 70 people were on hand for the Norwich City School District Board of Education’s annual re-organizational meeting Tuesday night.
Newly-elected board member Joseph McBride, Superintendent Gerard O’Sullivan and incumbent board member Tom Morrone all took their oaths of office to start the meeting, as the school board made its official appointments in preparation for the 2011-2012 school year.
The board voted unanimously to re-elect Heather Fredenburg as president, while Dr. Linda Horovitz will take over vice presidential duties from Sally Chirlin. Rob Wightman and Wendy Wright were appointed to the positions of district clerk and treasurer, respectively, and the central business office at BOCES will handle the district’s internal claims auditing position.
The board then voted to approve approximately 50 other appointments, resolutions and designations, including meeting dates for the upcoming school year, the certification of certain payrolls, policies and committee appointments.
