The Barrington Board of Education unanimously voted to approve Michael Drumm as the new president of the board Monday after it accepted the resignation of former President Andrew Wood, who left the state for a new job.
Drumm, who was nominated for the position by board member D. Wayne Alexander, then nominated Carla Bolling for the vice president position he vacated. Bolling also was unanimously approved for her new role.
In other actions, the board approved the hiring of Kimberly Moonen through the end of the school year. The board had preliminarily granted its approval to allow Moonen to start the year teaching third grade. The third-grade class sizes were the largest in the district, and the new hire will allow class sizes near those in other grades.
The board and Superintendent Anthony Arcodia also took time Monday to publicly thank School Secretary Sharon Farmer for her efforts during the first few days of the school year — particularly in helping track several children who got on the wrong buses leaving school in the first days and in making sure the children’s parents were kept fully aware of the situation.
