Last week, the item was pushed back a week to hear public commentary at the normally scheduled bi-weekly school committee meeting. 

Binienda is currently in her first three-year term as superintendent. 

The agenda item reads: “To conduct strategy in preparation for contract negotiations with nonunion personnel and to conduct negotiations with nonunion personnel – Superintendent, if an open meeting may have a detrimental effect on the collective bargaining position of the School Committee and the chair so declares.

Thursday’s meeting will take place at 7 PM at City Hall in the Mayor’s office.
