Carey Callaghan, Chair of SAU 70 Board
Tom Candon, Chair of Norwich Board
Kelly McConnell, Chair of Hanover Board
Neil Odell, Chair of Dresden Board
Frank Bass, Superintendent
Charge of the Committee
The Four Chairs Committee will consist of the Chairs from the SAU, Dresden, Norwich and Hanover Boards and the Superintendent. The purpose of the committee will be to act as a sounding board for the Superintendent, to allow for the efficient transmittal of information relevant to all boards, to provide feedback to the Superintendent regarding his performance in meeting his goals, and, when necessary, to discuss personnel issues in executive session. The Committee will meet on a set schedule. Any board member may attend the meetings. Committee meetings will be subject to the NH Open Meeting laws.
The Committee will have no decision-making authority. If a decision needs to be made regarding a topic discussed at a committee meeting, the appropriate Chair will take the item back to his or her board for discussion and, if appropriate, action. If a topic impacts more than one district, the SAU chair will bring it before the SAU Board. Each Chair will regularly report to his or her board on the substance of the matters discussed at Committee meetings.
Any Chair or the Superintendent may place an item on the agenda, though the SAU chair will coordinate development of the agenda and will chair the meetings.
