Hamilton Board of Education votes in new leadership tonight

Tonight the Hamilton Township Board of Education kicks off a new year.

With three new members, the nine-member body will pick its leaders and likely address some of the concerns carrying over from last year. Jennifer Barnock-Riddell, Albert Gayzik and Dina Thornton join the board after a crowded election last fall.

President Patty Del Giudice lead through a rocky year for the Board of Education: hiring a new superintendent, having a former mayor and school board member embroiled in a federal corruption scandal, fines from the state, facilities problems and lagging test scores.

In addition, they've had to deal with missing senior staff: the district does not have a permanent facilities director, human resources director, or, for the moment, business administrator.

Del Giudice has not indicated yet whether she will seek another term as Board President. Board Vice President William Harvey has not said whether he would seek the post, either.

The board has also scheduled a special session meeting for Jan. 9, but the agenda does not say what the meeting will involve.

You can find the board's agenda here.
