Plainfield Board of Ed transfers Belin-Pyles; Sheard to be Acting Superintendent

With eight members present (Terrence Bellamy was absent), the Plainfield Board of Education approved the transfer of former Superintendent of Schools Anna Belin-Pyles to her former position as Director of Student Intervention and Family Support Services, effective April 12.

BOE member John Campbell announced he was voting 'no' on the motion and member Richard Wyatt also commented, though his remarks were inaudible (and I was sitting in the front row).

With the recusal of David Rutherford, the vote was 5-2 in favor of the motion.

The second action item for the evening was a resolution making Dr. Debra Sheard the Acting Superintendent.

Pending approval by the County Executive Superintendent, Dr. Sheard would serve until the Board appoints a full-time Superintendent, or until it appoints an Interim Superintendent or until the close of business on June 30, whichever comes first.

At that point Dr. Sheard would resume her position as Assistant Superintendent.

The resolution again passed 5-2, with Rutherford recusing himself.
