With the first day of school fast approaching, the Eastern Townships School Board Council of Commissioners got straight to business during the first meeting since breaking for the summer. There were several positive comments from around the board table about how schools and centres are looking these days, following substantial renovation projects undertaken recently. In new business, the board named two administrative appointments that were filled during the summer. Sarah MacNeil was appointed to the position of principal at Sutton Elementary School. Jennifer Palik was named principal at Asbestos-Danville-Shipton Elementary School. According to Interim Director General Michel Soucy, there is still one administrative vacancy to fill; that of vice principal of Sherbrooke Elementary. The commissioners then chose the advisory committees on which they would like to sit, and then held elections to nominate chairs for each. See full story in the Thursday, Aug. 29 of The Record.
