Wachusett School Committee to take up no confidence vote in superintendent’s return planning – News – telegram.com

Spurred by some families and teachers’ recent frustrations with the district’s pandemic learning plan, a contingent of Wachusett Regional School Committee members has called for a special meeting to take a vote of no confidence in Superintendent Daryll McCall’s handling of the schools’ return this fall.

The motion up for vote at Tuesday’s meeting also would make the administration bring in an outside consultant to help steer the district’s educational model this year.

“What we’re really trying to do with this … is make a pivot in how we’re approaching” the education plan, said Michael Dennis, the committee’s vice chairman and one of the eight committee members who called for the special meeting.

Dennis, who is from Holden, said the committee has heard from dozens of parents and teachers in the last couple weeks upset with what they feel has been a lack of communication and planning from the administration.

The Power of Veto causes a rift within The Committee

Exclusive look at the new ‘Big Brother: All-Stars’ stage

‘Big Brother’ host Julie Chen previews the new front-of-house stage, and more.

On Sunday, The Committee once again grabbed control of the week, with Memphis winning the HOH and putting Da’Vonne and Kevin on the block. It was a predictable bit of business for The Committee, but the rest of the episode was somewhat interesting because Da’Vonne, on the block once again, was mad at David for ruining her game by flipping on their plan, an accusation that’s not true. Da’Vonne, much like Kevin and a lot of other players that have been voted out, has failed to see who’s running the show right now, and is clashing with one of her only allies left in the house.

That brings us to tonight’s episode, which has two main takeaways: Memphis is annoying the hell out of everyone, and Da’Vonne and Kevin
