IBerkshires  reports  the McCann School Committee met Thursday night in North Adams for what will be the last meeting of the year before students report to class.
The meeting was also the last for Aaron Dean who will be taking over as superintendent of the Adams-Cheshire Regional School District.
As Dean begins his career as top administrator, Superintendent James Brosnan was praised by the committee for two plus decades of service to the district in his recent evaluation.
Former principal and current Chairman Gary Rivers noted Brosnan's trust in his staff. "He gives his administrative team a lot of latitude," he said. "Having worked with Jim for 25 years. I can honestly say it's been a pleasure."
The survey evaluated all aspects of the job. Not only academic and leadership performance but financial issues and the ability to engage the community through parent interaction.
McCann starts the 2019-20 school year next week with teachers reporting Monday and students on Thursday.
