DERBY — Superintendent Stephen Tracy will be leaving his post here to become the new superintendent for Unified School District #2, the Department of Children and Families announced Tuesday.
The Unified School District #2 oversees the education programs offered at DCF facilities and the educational process of children in the department’s care and custody, according to a DCF press release.
Tracy will be taking over his new role effective July 2.
Whenever a town’s board or commission meets, they have to keep some sort of record of it. It’s so that anyone who wants to know what happened at that meeting can look it up.
Some towns take this charge very seriously. They broadcast the meetings live, have transcripts of the meetings available online, and keep digital recordings.
And then some towns are like Easton. If you want a written copy of the minutes, you might get them through the calendar on the town’s website. If you want an audio recording of the meeting, so you know exactly what was said, you have to request it from the first selectman’s office. And you may not get an immediate response. (I sent a request via email. They sent me a response via postal mail.)
The audio recordings can only be provided to you on audio tapes. So if you don’t have a tape player, you’re out of luck.
I would just like to point out:
This Sony digital recorder costs $63 at Best Buy. You can record up to 536 hours of audio on it. It’s compatible with a Mac or a PC. You just plug it into a computer to upload the files. Files that you can email, burn on to a CD, or post on to the internet. It’s quite an amazing little invention.
Police have released a security camera photo of the suspects in the robbery of the Subway at 1700 Barnum Avenue on Friday.
At 7:50 p.m. two black men aged 18-23 years old entered the restaurant. One wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt brandished a firearm and the other with a black North Face jacket demanded money. Both men fled on foot and with an undetermined amount of cash.
Anyone with information can call the Detective Bureau at 203-581-5201 or Det. James Borrico 203-581-5294. All information receive will be kept confidential.
