Namin stands by Bay Path open house decision

November 16, 2011
SPENCER — Despite protests from other officials, Superintendent of Schools Reza Namin is standing behind a decision to keep Knox Trail Junior High School students from attending an open house at Bay Path Vocational Regional High School.

"I did not want to remove students from the classroom," Namin said. "Not a single parent came up and complained to me."

Namin said that with all the other ways Knox Trail students learn about Bay Path — including an evening open house — it is not necessary to have them miss classroom time to attend the Oct. 21 daytime open house.

"When I told them we would not be coming, I also gave a list of the things that we do to provide students with information about Bay Path," he said, adding that 30 Knox Trail eighth-graders have already applied to Bay Path for next year.
