Board of Ed Meetings Slated For Same Night This Week
Central, Berkeley school boards both meeting on Thursday
Take your pick.
Anyone interested in attending the monthly Berkeley Board of Education or Central Regional Board of Education meetings will have to choose between the two later this week.
Both meetings are scheduled for Thursday evening. Berkeley kicks off at 6:30 p.m. in the Berkeley Township Elementary School at 10 Emory Avenue and Central Regional gets underway at 7 p.m. in the board meeting room at the high school off Forest Hills Parkway.
The Berkeley school board traditionally meets on the last Thursday of the month; Central's usual meeting time is the third Thursday of each month.
Berkeley Schools Superintendent James D. Roselli said this month's Sept. 27 meeting had to be moved to Sept. 20 so the board would have a quorum.
"When we can't have a quorum, we have to accomodate," Roselli said.
This not the first time this year the two school boards have met on the same night. Berkeley has changed meeting dates previously.
Central Regional moved their August meeting back a week last month to take care of last-minute business before school opened, Central Business Administrator Kevin O'Shea said.
"Last month we did move ours back to the fourth Thursday," he said. "That was the only time we were out of order."
Roselli said he understands that some parents have children in both school districts, which makes it difficult to attend board meetings on the same night.
