Community Input Needed in Developing a District Strategic Plan

The Strategic Planning Committee of the Timberlane Regional School Board seeks community input in developing strategic planning goals specific to 21st Century learning and academics, facilities, and culture and climate.

A strategic plan is an official document that defines the mission, vision and beliefs of the school district. The document is to be used to plan for future initiatives that contribute to educational success. Community input is paramount.

Public forums will be held on November 1st at the Timberlane Regional Middle School, 44 Greenough Road, Plaistow and on November 27th at Sandown North Elementary School, 23 Stagecoach Road, Sandown. Sessions will run from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

Members of the community may attend one or both of the sessions. Pizza will be served to forum participants.

Please consider contributing to this very important planning process.

Brian Boyle, TRSB Chairman

Important Social Media Information for Parents and Guardians

This message is written to inform our parents and guardians about serious and dangerous social media activities this summer. We have learned that many school administrators in the Northeast are taking the opportunity to inform families of a new macabre online activity known as the “Blue Whale Challenge.” This challenge can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat as well as other social media. The challenges start out as seemingly harmless and then progress to more serious challenges.

We are providing this information to you so that you are aware and can be proactive in the steps you take to reinforce positive use of social media. Please take the time this summer to have open, healthy discussions about your children’s use of social media, reinforce the good decision making that you expect from your children and let them know they may go to a trusted adult for assistance in making positive social media choices. If you notice changes in your children, please reach out to the appropriate professionals for assistance.

You may certainly contact Susan Rasicot, Director of Student Services 603-382-6119 ext. 2224, with questions regarding this notification.

Dr. Earl Metzler is pleased to announce the appointment of Thomas F. Geary, III to the position of Business Operations Coordinator*.  Beginning July 1st, Mr. Geary will provide direct oversight and management of the food service program, transportation services, and all aspects of facilities which include acting as purchasing agent, preparing contracts for, and supervising repairs and maintenance of school buildings for the Hampstead and Timberlane school districts.

Mr. Geary brings an extensive background in the area of facilities oversight having been employed by the Haverhill Public Schools since 2001 with the last six years serving as Supervisor or Facilities.  In his capacity of Supervisor or Facilities, he was responsible for overseeing all facility maintenance, construction, and operations for 19 district buildings, and establishing a safe, clean, and well maintained educational environment for over 7,000 students. He managed a $1,500,000 annual operations budget, and over $70,000,000 in construction projects, while supervising both contracted vendors and sixty plus employees. Additionally, he facilitated the training of the entire district staff on new school safety and active shooter protocols, participated in collective bargaining sessions with labor groups, and collaborated with all City departments to accomplish the goals of the Superintendent of Schools.

His credentials include successful completion of the University of Massachusetts, Lowell – Project Management Certificate Program and the American Physical Plant Administrators Educational Facilities Professional Credentialing Program. Furthermore, Mr. Geary served on the Timberlane Regional School District Budget Committee from March 2015 to 2017, thus has a clear understanding of the budget development process.

“I am confident Mr. Geary’s expertise and skillsets make him a perfect fit for our two districts. His excellent qualifications and his commitment to improving the facilities, food service and transportation systems will enhance and support the overall operations and offerings of the central office and the individual districts.” – Dr. Metzler

*The Business Operations Coordinator vacancy was resultant of the recent promotion of Attorney Geoff Dowd to the position of Business Administrator.
