Manchester school board committee favors dropping residency requirement for top administrators
The board’s Coordination Committee voted on Tuesday to back eliminating the requirement. Gatsas, a member of the committee, was not present at the meeting because he was in the hospital recovering from surgery. The board could vote on the proposal as soon as its meeting Monday, which the mayor is not expected to attend while he recuperates.
The requirement has proven difficult for Dave Ryan, the assistant superintendent hired in the summer who lives in Hooksett with his family. At a school board meeting a couple of months ago, the board agreed to grant Ryan a six-month extension to meet the contract provision.
On Wednesday, Connors explained that she had told Gatsas about her intention prior to his being unexpectedly admitted to Catholic Medical Center.
Others on the committee were supportive of dropping the requirement.
“I’m OK with this going forward, but a contract has been signed,” she said. “When you sign a contract, you agree to a contract.”firstname.lastname@example.org
