School Committee news

The new year brings changes to the Boston School Committee. Last week, Mayor Thomas M. Menino appointed two members from among the finalists recommended by a Citizens Nominating Panel. Mayor Menino reappointed longtime member Alfreda J. Harris and appointed the Rev. Dr. Gregory Groover, Sr. (pictured here), pastor of the Historic Charles Street AME Church. Rev. Groover fills the vacancy left by William Boyan, who did not seek reappointment. In its annual organizational meeting, the School Committee re-elected Dr. Elizabeth Reilinger as Chair and Marchelle Raynor as Vice-Chair. The Committee also approved the 2007 meeting schedule, including several upcoming public hearings about the budget for the 2007-2008 school year.
