The news and chatter out of Tuesday’s Camden Board of Education meeting was who was laid off.
But given the state’s intervention plan, which the board agreed to last month, it was also interesting to see who was reappointed for the 2013-2014 school year.
Three top administrators, whose positions are expected to be abolished by the state once it takes over, were saved by the board. For the next several weeks at least, Andrea Gonzalez-Kirwin, Patricia Kenny and John C. Oberg will remain in their respective administrative positions.
The state intervention plan, filed in March, says that the state Education Commissioner “intends to abolish” deputy superintendent, assistant superintendent for administration and support services (that’s Kenny), assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction (that's Kirwin), human resources director (Maryann Greenfield currently holds that position and also reappointed) and business administrator (Oberg has been serving as interim BA for a few months), among other positions.
