Superintendent in Mortal Danger

Breaking News

The Burlington School Board voted 10-4 to bring superintendent Jeanne Collins’s contract renewal to a vote tonight… a vote that due to a delay will take place tomorrow night sometime after 7pm at Burlington High School.  The contract would have renewed automatically without a vote, so that was in essence a 10-4 vote against Jeanne Collins.  I was one of the 4 against voting on her contract ( in favor of her).  Now this does not mean the vote on her contract itself will also be 10-4, but damn- Jeanne can’t feel good about this.

If you have opinions about what the school board should do you can hit up every member in one swoop at board@bsdvt.org .

Hi Haik – I hope the vote to vote means just that people want to go on record supporting Jeanne. As the parent of an incoming BHS 9th grader, I am very worried about the prospect of a Superintendent job search in this climate. I trust that Jeanne would work incredibly hard following an affirmative vote to move the District forward as quickly as possible. Thanks so much for your continuing service. I’m not sure many people are aware just how hard it is to be a school board member! I’m not sure people know this is unpaid!!! Good luck and I wish you a peaceful summer.

I was so surprised to learn that racism exists in Burlington and will be glad it has been eradicated when Mrs. Collins is gone.

Racism arrived with her, and it will certainly disappear when she does.
