School Board Update

Hi neighbors — On behalf of the School Board and the kids in the district, I would like to thank the voters of Ward 5 for their continued strong support of the school budget. It will make a big difference in the provision of important services in the schools, including the afterschool program, fully-staffed libraries, and expanded ELL instruction.

I also appreciate the opportunity to continue representing Ward 5 on the Board. I have enjoyed my work on the Board a great deal, and look forward to another two years as a liaison between the community and the school district.

The Board’s March meeting has been moved to Tuesday, March 20, and will be held at the usual location, District headquarters on Colchester Avenue. The Board will hold its next meeting on April 3 (same location), when it will elect its officers for the coming year.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to contact me or Commissioner Amy Werbel (

Fred Lane
Ward 5 School Commissioner
