Board to reconvene, disclose 'climate' inquiry

Supporters of teachers Matt Nelligan and Ann-Marie McManus came back for round two of the fight to reverse their transfer from Guilderland High School to Farnsworth Middle School, at a school board meeting on Monday, July 7.

The board convened and then quickly went into executive session.

As a result of the meeting last night the board has chosen to reconvene in a public meeting on Monday, July 14, at 8 a.m. to discuss if they can, an will, overturn the superintendents decision to transfer the teachers.

They also said a redacted version of he culture climate inquiry, the reason the two teachers are being moved, will be made available.

The teachers said in a written statement that action should have been taken at the Monday, July 7, meeting.

"[This] is a cynical delay tactic designed to ride out public outrage over the unjust retaliatory action against us. The delay is insulting to the thousands of Guilderland residents who have already demanded Board action. There should be an up or down vote now from all Board members on whether they support the transfer," said Nelligan and McMannus in a joint statement.
