The Westwood Regional Board of Education picked Roberta Hanlon as its president and Darlene Mandeville as its vice president for 2013 during the board's annual reorganization meeting last week.
"We've had some great accomplishments in the district and I'm proud to take over and continue the momentum," Hanlon said.
Hanlon told Patch she was aware that many people were focused on some recent controversies in the district, but hoped to focus on continuing positives like the recent state approval of the district's teacher evaluation instruments.
"There are some wonderful things attached to this school district," Hanlon said. "We have a great staff and we're looking forward to continuing a great year."
Hanlon and Mandeville will be sitting down with Acting Superintendent Rory McCourt to flesh out their goals for the upcoming year. Hanlon said she would wait until then to disclose what they hoped to accomplish.
