MHS Principal and Manchester Superintendent To Be, Matt Geary appears on Manchester Review in April to discuss a wide range of district wide issues such as elementary school reorganization, the recommended Fifth/Sixth Grade Academy at Bennet, the impact of racial balance requirements, School Choice and the Common Core controversy. In the interview with host Jack Peak, Geary states “I am a believer in a ⅚ Academy at Bennet because it frees up elementary school space. I don’t know if taxpayers are willing to pay for renovating all the existing elementary schools.” He sees the drivers influencing elementary school reorganization as: the condition of the buildings; racial balance; and what can we afford. Geary wants to hear from parents on their opinions.
Manchester Review is on the air Monday nights on Cox PATV channel 15 at 9 PM. You can also watch both shows at any time on You Tube.
