School board to discuss personnel, potential litigation at special meeting tonight

The Barrington Board of Education will  privately discuss items involving personnel and potential litigation, according to the agenda posted this morning for the board’s special action meeting this evening.

Avon School

“The Borough of Barrington Board of Education will be holding a Special Action Meeting on Wednesday, June 27, 2012 at 6:30 pm at the Avon Elementary School, located at 862 Mercer Drive, Haddonfield, NJ 08033 to discuss matters of personnel. Formal action may occur at this meeting.”

The public portion of the agenda calls for two transfers of $200,000 into the district’s Tuition Reserve account and Capital Reserve account.

At that time, the board is scheduled to enter executive session away from the public.

The agenda notes that “the Board of Education may return to open session to conduct business at the conclusion of the executive session.” Similarly, the initial notice of this special action meeting posted on the district website states “formal action may occur at this meeting.”

The mention of “potential litigation” also appeared as a matter for discussion on the board’s June 11 agenda, and the possibility of litigation was mentioned during the public portion of a board meeting in connection with the recent resignation of Woodland School Principal Mort Argoe.
