In the November 2021 municipal election, there were three School Committee candidates who were unopposed, Rajeev Parlikar (Ward 1), Chris Brezski (Ward 2), and Cove Davis (Ward 8).
According to League policies, unopposed candidates are not permitted to participate in our candidate forums. Therefore, the LWVN thought it important to invite these new School Committee members to The League Presents so that Newton can begin to get to know them, their thoughts, and priorities relative to the Newton Public School System.
Our conversation focused on the following three areas:
- Their highest priority for the 2022-23 term of office
- Their thoughts on how the NPS is and should be addressing the social-emotional health of students, at all grade levels.
- Given the strains that Covid-19 is putting on students, families, educators, and all staff, their thoughts as the changes should be done to mitigate/alleviate these strains?
Please join me in wishing them great success in the 2022-23 term.
