The Mattapoisett School Committee met on Monday night for the sole purpose of filling a vacancy on the Superintendency Union #55 side of the Old Rochester Regional Joint School Committee and wasted no time in voting Karin Barrows as its representative to the JSC.
“Thank you very much for stepping forward,” said Mattapoisett School Committee Chair Jim Muse to Barrows on the Zoom meeting after a unanimous vote that was taken to fill the vacancy created by the recent resignation of Shannon Finning from both committees.
Finning was chair of the Union #55 side of the ORR JSC, while Cary Humphrey, chair of the Region side, also left the JSC in 2021. The JSC meets on Thursday, August 26, at 6:30 pm, and the next meeting of the Mattapoisett School Committee is scheduled to be held on Monday, August 30, at 6:30 pm.
