Deluca remains school board president


The leadership of the Whitehall School board will remain unchanged after last Monday’s annual organizational meeting.

The board voted to approve the nominations of Mark Deluca and Virginia Rivette as board president and vice president, respectively.

Both return to the roles they have filled over the past year.
Deluca and Rivette were the only two members who were nominated to fill the positions and both received the unanimous approval of the board.

Afterwards, Deluca expressed his gratitude for his nomination and subsequent approval.

“I’d like to thank everyone for another year and their support over the past year.”

Before making the nominations, district clerk Martha Bascue swore in Rivette and George Armstrong, both of whom were reelected to the board in May. 

Officials also made the appointments for the 2011-12 school year, most of which remain unchanged.

Bascue will return as district clerk; Kristen Aubin will serve as district treasurer; Heather McGee will fill the role of tax collector, and Joyce Leipfert and Alan Prindle will be the districts internal claims auditor and internal auditor respectively. Jenkins, Beecher and Bethel LLP will be the schools independent auditors.

Jean Purdy was appointed as extracurricular accounts treasurer and Superintendent James Watson will fill the roles of deputy treasurer, records retention and disposition officer, and records access officer.

Whitehall Family Medicine will be the official school physician, Glens Falls National Bank will serve as the official depository for school funds and Judge and Duffy will handle legal matters as the school attorney.

After the organizational meeting, the board held a relatively brief meeting during which they approved the 2011-12 special education committees and impartial hearing office members for the upcoming school year.
