LIVERMORE FALLS – A situation that began unraveling Christmas Day is expected to dominate the agenda of the Regional School Unit 73 board meeting Thursday evening.School Board Chair Denise Rodzen said she woke Christmas morning to a flurry of emails asking if she’d seen a Sun Journal news story detailing Superintendent Todd LeRoy’s plan to “trim” the district’s administrative team for budgeting purposes.“It was all of a sudden,” Rodzen said, when reached by phone Tuesday.That trim included removing Spruce Mountain High School Principal TJ Plourde from his position.In a letter to the newspaper, LeRoy wrote: “Mr. Plourde was not fired. The plan has been to reduce the administrative team by one position and utilize the cost savings to bring additional help and resources to our district’s students. The original plan was to wait to implement this plan, but decided to move the timetable up a little to begin the process of transforming two schools, the middle and high schools, into one school, a secondary school.”Despite stating that Plourde was not fired, LeRoy went on to write that the district will provide assistance and positive references for Plourde to find employment in a different district.The decision was rescinded last week following a closed-door meeting of RSU 73 board members and officials. The board met in executive session for more than three hours Monday evening.“The board never voted to do his plan of consolidating or whatever he wanted to do. It was never brought before us. There’s a process we have that includes meeting with staff, teachers, the community to weigh the pros and the cons before voting on anything like that,” Rodzen said.Attempts to contact LeRoy and Plourde via phone and email made Tuesday morning were not returned by the time this article was posted.LeRoy’s controversial move has been met with significant resistance from parents, staff and students, including several Facebook pages, Bring Back TJ and Remove Todd LeRoy. A petition for LeRoy to step down from his position has been circulated and is expected to be presented to the school board Thursday.“Due to Mr. LeRoy’s manner of executing sweeping changes with no long-term plan or proof of the wanted outcome, and due to the way he responded to the community’s concerns, he has lost the trust of this community. He is no longer an effective administrator, and his contract should be immediately terminated as such,” the petition states.The petition is also moving for any board members that were aware of the situation to be removed from their positions.A vote of no confidence was presented to staff by the district’s Education Association Tuesday evening resulting in a 155-4 tally.Aside from three directors who did not vote on the matter, the board collectively approved the hiring of LeRoy back in August. Prior to coming to RSU 73, LeRoy was the superintendent in Madison, School Administrative District 59, for five years before resigning. As superintendent in SAD 59, LeRoy was faced with difficult budgeting situations, along with the overseeing of systematic changes including the withdrawal of several towns.“Some people are making a reference to his time in Madison, but the situation was totally different. In Madison the board gave approval, this board never even voted. So I don’t compare the two situations,” Rodzen said.“Those issues did come up in the hiring process and we were provided explanations. It’s not my story to tell,” she added.Thursday’s meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. in the Spruce Mountain Middle School cafeteria.
On Sunday, August 27, the first Way of the Cross under the sea in the world was officially opened in Jelinak Bay in Trogir.Through this unique project, it is planned to set up the entire Way of the Cross, all 14 stations of the cross, and under the sea will be laid 50 sculptures representing the Way of the Cross, and the sculptures will be life-size. Currently, only the first station has been set up, and the completion of the entire project is planned for the end of September 2017.The location for setting the entire underwater story, fell on a small bay near Trogir, Jelinak bay, which proved to be perfect due to the depth of up to 10 meters. “Jelinak Bay belongs to the municipality of Marina, which readily accepted our idea and thus enriched and expanded its tourist offer. We are convinced that the project is very important for the whole region and that it will greatly contribute to the tourism industry. ” points out Josko Kandija, one of the originators of this new and unique tourist attraction.”Cross stations will be set at a depth of 4 to 9 meters, and in this way diving will be adapted to everyone, as well as experienced divers, as well as to beginners, those who have never before experienced stunning landscapes of the depths of the sea.. The plan is to place a large statue of Jesus about 9 meters high in March, before Easter, at a depth of 18 meters, which would mark the 15th station of the Way of the Cross. Also, the plan is to illuminate the entire underwater park so that you can dive and see the Way of the Cross at night, which will certainly be another attraction and special feature of the underwater park.”Concludes Kandija.
