Current Regional Public School includes Amherst, Leverett, Pelham, Shutesbury grades 7-12
Interestingly enough the Amherst Regional School Committee never met in Executive Session to finally approve the $120,000 payment to former math teacher Carolyn Gardner and $60,000 to her esteemed attorneys.
But they did discuss the situation under the protective cloak of Executive Session three times prior to the sealing of the lucrative deal.
Regional School Committee went into Executive Session at 8:00 PM last night
And of course they had to meet in Executive Session last night to approve those Carolyn Gardner related Executive Session minutes after my Public Documents request.
And I was glad to see secretary Deb Westmoreland and HR Director Kathy Mazur take far better notes than the Amherst Select Board did a few years back when former Town Manager Larry Shaffer suddenly flew the coop.
The discussion this article has stimulated on Facebook is nothing if not interesting, perhaps even more so than the original article. (Keeping in mind Kurt Geryk is the husband of School Superintendent Maria Geryk.)
