With an increase in enrollment for the fifth straight year, The Eastern Townships School Board started off the 2018-19 school year on a high note.
“We are so optimistic right now. Anything is possible,” said Chairman Mike Murray, during Tuesday evening’s council of commissioners meeting.
Since Tuesday’s meeting was the first since summer break, most of the advisory committees have yet to meet.
The meeting began with a heated opening question period.
Parent Mike Pezzi brought a substantial list of issues to the table following the denial of a request made last year to have his son’s bus stop in front of his house rather than have him walk on the shoulder of a ministerial route to a designated stop.
Pezzi first pointed out that he believed the minutes of the May 22 meeting he had attended didn’t accurately reflect the question period, pointing to a question he had asked which was omitted.
