BATH TWP.: Before the business of the December Revere Board of Education meeting got underway, Claudia Hower, board president, took some time to recap the district’s highlights from 2012.
“We’ve had many accomplishments for Revere for 2012,” said Hower, adding that first and foremost “our students continue to excel.”
Hower began her list with the district’s “Excellent with Distinction” ranking on the state report cards as well as the naming of Revere High School to the Advanced Placement Honor Roll for the third time. Also topping her list were the additional option of a tuition-based all-day Kindergarten in the district and the formation of a STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Math) Committee district wide to better focus on those areas of study.
In addition, Hower pointed to energy efficiency improvements in the buildings, in particular lighting advancements, window replacements and wireless capabilities; the implementation of a five-year strategic plan with input from all district stakeholders; an upgrade in the district’s financial rating from Moody’s; the negotiation of multi-year contracts with employee groups; and increased and better communication efforts with the Revere Schools’ communities.
“These are all things we should be proud of and can build on for the future,” added Superintendent Randy Boroff.
The board has scheduled its Organizational Meeting for 6 p.m. on Tuesday in the Revere High School Library. The meeting dates for the remainder of 2013 will be determined at that time.
