Special Hudson School Board Meeting
Nov 29, 2010: 7pm- 11:59 pm
Special meeting of the Hudson Board of Education 7 p.m. Monday to discuss recent events in Hudson schools and school board meetings. From the Register-Star: "During the week of Nov. 15-19, there were 'four assaults and two other highly disruptive incidents with large crowds,' High School Co-Principal Tom Gavin told the school board Nov. 22. At least seven students were suspended, at least five superintendent’s hearings were scheduled and the school was shut down into a shelter mode for the final two periods of Nov. 18’s scheduled half-day." Then on Nov. 22, Gavin reportedly threatened another assistant principal during a school board meeting. "A board resolution to create a community task force to address the problem failed by a three-to-two vote at the Nov. 22 meeting.... Peter Meyer, who proposed the resolution, Jeff Otty and Peter Merante voted yes, Elizabeth Fout and Mary Daly voted no and [Board President Emil] Meister abstained," John Mason wrote in Register-Star.
