Longmeadow Tackles School Impasse

Officials are working to fill the four  seats on the Longmeadow School Committee after more than half the board  resigned last week.  

The remaining three members of the  committee and the Longmeadow Select Board decided at a meeting last  night that they will make a short-term, temporary appointment of a  fourth member to the committee on Thursday night.  

Currently, the three  members cannot make legal decisions for the school system.  

The four  members who resigned did so after a recall mechanism was approved in a  town meeting, seemingly aimed at the school board members who voted not  to renew the contract of the school district's superintendent.

Officials say having three members on the School Board now is a real issue since bills cannot be approved.

That should be taken care of with the meeting Thursday.
