Kennett Consolidated school directors say goodbyes

Kennett Square >> In an otherwise routine meeting, the Kennett Consolidated School District’s Board of Directors took time on Monday night to say their goodbyes. It was the first meeting since the recent election, and several members took some time at the end to express their appreciation to those who were leaving, who included President Kendra LaCosta, Heather Schaen, Janis Reynolds, and Robert Norris. Board members including Dominic F. Perigo, Joseph Meola, and Rudy Alfonso took some time to explain how the long-serving Schaen and other outgoing members had helped them when they first came on the board. Perigo said if the incoming board members were half as good as those leaving, the district would be in good shape. In other business, the board members introduced a number of revisions to their policy manual and approved one. They heard progress reports from the standing committees, approved a number of staff changes, and addressed other routine matters.
