WARWICK, RI — The Warwick School Committee will debate the addition of an an Assistant Superintendent to the Warwick Schools administration Thursday at 5:45 p.m. at Warwick Veterans Middle School, a topic originally on the Jan. 14 agenda.
Regular business at the meeting will begin after the body ends its executive session at 7 p.m., according to the agenda.

The last School Committee meeting’s executive session agenda included a discussion on legal advice concerning the appointment of/contract for an executive director of school programs, also referenced as an Assistant Superintendent in an organizational chart included in the meeting’s documents. School Committee Chairwoman Karen Bachus announced the topic would be delayed at the start of the Jan. 14 meeting, however.

Warwick Teachers Union President Darlene Netcoh and teacher Tracy McDermott each spoke against the addition, which Superintendent Philip Thornton said would be revenue neutral.

“Creating and filling positions in the middle of a budget cycle makes you look bad. Don’t do it,” Netcoh said.
