ARPS Superintendent Maria Geryk, the town's highest paid employee
As part of the state mandated comprehensive evaluation of Amherst Regional Schools Superintendent Maria Geryk that played out last week at the circus-like Regional School Committee meeting the Superintendent had to present the committee with a "self evaluation".
Out of the five overall goals she considered two of them "met" and the other three showed "significant progress." All in all, not too bad as self evaluations go.
The Regional School Committee seemed to agree and 7 of the 11 gave her a sterling review with 2 abstaining (being only recently elected) and 2 seemed to disagree.
Pelham SC members: Tara Luce abstained, Trevor Baptiste voted "no" and will issue his own evaluation
No mention or discussion of the racial incidents that fractured decorum over this past school year or the unjust treatment of a white student bullied by three black students, or even the inept implementation of a ban on nuts.
There was some mention of the many "lockdowns" during the year and follow up meetings with police to "adjust procedures". So let's hope that solves the problem.
And next year the High School and Middle School will have cameras installed in the hallways, although the problem with racist graffiti occurred in the bathrooms, where you can't very well install cameras.
