Newton Mayor Setti Warren is calling for an independent review of School Committee governance to ensure future committees “can operate effectively as a group” following the controversial handling of anti-Semitic incidents at F.A. Day Middle School, The TAB’s Jonathan Dame reports.
In an unusual move on Monday, Warren emailed the entire School Committee listing four actions he argued should be taken following a series of TAB stories about an outside investigator’s report on graffiti incidents at Day….
– Each School Committee member must be given the full unredacted Day Middle School investigative report.
– If further appeals to the Secretary of State’s previous rulings are filed, the School Committee’s response must be discussed and reviewed as a body.
– The School Committee must participate in a training with a Civil Rights expert to ensure that Newton Public Schools is complying with civil rights laws.
– The School Committee must commission an independent review of School Committee governance so that the Committee adopts policies and procedures to ensure that future Committees can operate effectively as a group.
