Other members of the committee include Michael Kessler, Eileen Satkin, Thomas Taylor and alternate, Carol Molnar. Other participants in the revision of the special education policies were Director of Student Personnel Services, Dr. Ted Kozlik, and Board of Education Policy Committee Administrative Liaison, David Tuller.
A draft copy of the new policies has been placed in each school office, the administration building and the Westfield Memorial Library for interested citizens to review. Before voting on the policies, the public will have a chance for input.
Questions should be directed to Mr. Tuller at (908) 7894428.

Mayor Jardim to Head League of Municipalities
WESTFIELD Mayor Thomas C. Jardim of Westfield was elected this past week as President of the Union County League of Municipalities (UCLOM). Mayor Jardim's term as president begins on January 1, 2000.
The League consists of elected representatives, mostly mayors, of Union County's 21 municipalities. The
organization's purpose is to foster a dialogue among municipalities in the County of Union for the purpose of sharing ideas and finding ways to provide residents with services in a more efficient, costeffective manner.
Mayor Jardim stated that his primary goal as President of the League of Municipalities will be to initiate concrete shared service measures among municipal governments in the county.
"The Union County League of Municipalities provides a unique forum for elected leaders from all of Union County towns to share their best practices, initiate costsaving cooperative ventures and speak with one voice on issues of mutual concern.
"My focus during my tenure as President of UCLOM will be to make real progress to initiate shared services in the areas of municipal court, fire services, municipal library and other functions of municipal government."
The UCLOM meets once a month at Union County College in Cranford. Mayor Jardim most recently served as Treasurer of the league.
