To the editor:

As CEA President, I would like to make some clarifications regarding Ron Reed’s letter to the editor, Friday, Oct. 27, 2017.

Mr. Reed referenced Kim Richard, chairperson of the Financial Planning and Supervision Commission of the Coventry Local School District, several times in his letter. Ms. Richard has been removed from the commission.

The Coventry Teachers’ Negotiated Agreement was never placed on the commission’s agenda after it was approved and the funds were certified by the Coventry Board of Education. The teachers’ contract was never mentioned specifically in a public meeting.

Coventry teachers sincerely appreciate the support of the Coventry Local Schools and the Coventry community.

Mike Staiger, CEA President,
Coventry Local Schools
