ELSD Starts New Year
By Melinda Darrow

By the time this article goes to print, school should have started at Elk Lake. The August 21 Elk Lake/SCCTC school board meeting was riddled with discussions pertinent to the start of a new year.

The 2007/2008 school year will begin with some difference in staff than 2006/2007. Changes announced at the August meeting included three resignations, two hirings, and two continuations. The board accepted, with regret, the resignation of John Joseph, from both a fifth grade position and from his role as Jr. Varsity girls’ soccer assistant coach. The resignation of Angel Severcool from an elementary special education position was also regretfully accepted. Lesley Tewkesbury was approved to fill a math position in the middle school, and Tracey Morraza to fill a position working with non-IEP students in the Career Center. Alan Caines will continue in the role of assistant principal, and Gerry Mulkerin, who filled a one-on-one associate position at the end of last year on a substitute basis, will retain the position full time.

After a long search, with many sites being investigated, the committee recommended that a sale proposal for a parcel on Rte. 706 be approved. The parcel is just over five acres, and straddles Bridgewater and New Milford Townships. A driveway permit exists. There was a holdup, as a power line runs through the property and it needed to be ascertained whether this would be a problem; it won’t, as the property is large enough for COG’s needs while allowing a fifteen-foot right-of-way to Penelec.
