Little Egg Harbor School Board Tackles Annual Safe Return Plan Renewal and Honors Outgoing Members

In a recent meeting of the Little Egg Harbor School Board, the annual renewal of the Safe Return Plan was discussed, outgoing board member Lisa Semler was honored, and updates were shared regarding the search for a new superintendent. The meeting also included debate about the reorganization meeting date, discussions about changing meeting times, and a report from the Cyber Security Committee.

One item on the agenda was the Safe Return Plan, a crucial measure designed to ensure the safety and health of students amidst the ongoing pandemic. Despite its seeming obsolescence as conditions improve, Superintendent Patte Blood emphasized the necessity of renewing it annually. The board concurred, underscoring the importance of maintaining safety measures and protocols in the evolving health scenario.

In addition to the Safe Return Plan, the meeting also addressed procedural concerns, particularly with regards to the reorganization meeting date. There was considerable discussion, with one member proposing a change of date due to a scheduling conflict, and conversations about the potential costs and implications of amending meeting times.

The meeting also served as an occasion to honor outgoing board member Lisa Semler for her years of service on the Little Egg Harbor Board of Education. Semler’s departure was met with expressions of gratitude from her colleagues and the public, highlighting the impact of her work on the community.

Another key item on the agenda was the report from the Cyber Security Committee, which emphasized the ongoing efforts to enhance the safety of schools in the digital arena. This issue is particularly relevant considering the recent surge in cyber attacks targeting educational institutions.

Superintendent Blood also provided updates on the search for a new superintendent, a leadership role for the school board.

The meeting concluded with a mention of an upcoming reorganization meeting and a warm farewell to the year, with well wishes for the holiday season extended to all attendees.
