Ray Gomes, Vice Chairperson of the Newport School Committee, and Dave Hanos, Chairperson of the Newport School Committee, joined me today on What’sUpNewp Radio Edition on AM 1540 WADK to discuss the confusion behind the scheduling of Parent-Teacher Conferences and more.

During the program, it was, in fact, confirmed that the Teachers’ Association of Newport and Newport School Committee agreed to a deal and Parent-Teacher Conferences would take place from 1 pm to 6 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. You’ll hear the decision live at the end of the program.

Jennifer Azevedo, the Assistant Executive Director of UniServNEARI who represents the Teachers’ Association of Newport (TAN), accepted an invitation to join us on the program but notified us on Monday afternoon around 12:30 pm that she would not be able to make the interview.
