The learning process advocated by the Clinton Central School District doesn’t end even for Board of Education members, President Mary Lou Lauchert said at their meeting last week.
Lauchert was the recipient of a Board Achievement Award presented by district Superintendent Dr. Steve Grimm on behalf of the New York State School Boards Association at that May 8 meeting, recognizing Lauchert for 75 hours of continued leadership development training.
“We value the lifelong education process, and we continue to learn,” Lauchert said.
The meeting was prefaced by an hour-long Meet the Candidates presentation as board hopefuls Donna Durr Arancio, Sam Catterson, and Melinda Leising vied for public support for the two open seats, and then another hour of a district budget presentation. The results of the May 15 vote on both were unavailable at press time.
In the Bright Spots portion of the meeting, Grimm celebrated the kindergarten through 12th grade art show the day before. He also said the eighth grade students would be heading to New York City May 11 to visit the Intrepid Sea, Space and Air Museum Complex and the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.
