  • School Board Notes 1/4/17 Happy 2017, Deerfield! Over the course of 2016, the School Board took many steps to begin looking to the future of DCS. One example is that we have been working with Superintendent Patty Sherman to support the DCS search committee charged with nominating a replacement for Principal Paul Yergeau, who is retiring at the end of the year. At our December 21st meeting, Ms. Sherman notified the Board that finalist interviews are scheduled for early January, and a community night to meet the finalists is planned for Tuesday, January 24th.Another example of trying to anticipate future concerns for our school is the Board’s desire to execute an engineering study of the current state of DCS as well as ...
