Personnel matters prompt special meeting


GREENFIELD — Greenfield-Central Schools will hold a special meeting of its board of education Monday morning to “take care of some personnel matters,” Superintendent Harold Olin said.

Olin confirmed to the Daily Reporter that he and the school board “did have a concern to investigate” in recent days and “followed standard protocols” in investigating that concern.

He would not elaborate on the nature of the concern or the investigation that followed. Olin also declined to comment on any action the district might have already taken in the matter or what members of the staff might be involved, citing employee privacy.

The district strives for transparency, Olin added, and more information will likely be available following Monday’s board meeting.

The school board met in an executive session earlier this week to potentially discuss, among other things, “confidential records and/or employee job performance,” according to a notice received by the Daily Reporter.

The board will meet in executive session again at 7:30 a.m. Monday at the district’s administration center, 700 N. Broadway, Greenfield.

A special board meeting — which is open to the public — will be held shortly thereafter. It’s scheduled to begin at 7:45 a.m. Monday, also in the administration center.

An agenda for the special board meeting shared with the Daily Reporter lists “personnel matters” as the only topic for the board’s consideration.
