Report on the 7 Town Meeting, April 12, 2016



The towns decided that until the OPEB agreement is approved by the CBRSD and Cummington, the transition agreement could not be signed.


If the district and Cummington can come to an agreement on the OPEB then the towns would be willing to have special town meetings to consider the withdrawal of Cummington from the district.

School Committee Meeting, April 14, 2016

There was not much discussion regarding the transition agreement or the Cummington withdrawal after the conclusion of events at the 7 Town Meeting.

Informational

OPEB

The district and the Select Board of Cummington each feel that the numbers they have offered are realistic.

Informational

Town Meeting, Friday, May 6th

The committee discussed the possibility of bringing a non-binding vote about our budget to be included in the Town Meeting discussions or directly after. The hope would be to notify the people of Cummington about where the committee has been; where are we now; what we anticipate costs to be; and the OPEB.

A discussion with the Select Board needs to occur to see if this is feasible or necessary at this time.

Adjournment

There being no more business to discuss the meeting adjourned at 8:45pm.

The next Ad Hoc Education

Committee meeting is scheduled for
