GN: Tech Chair Victor Olson responded to this mornings Posts
The school’s attorney has been in communication with legal representation of both parties to coordinate confirmation to set up a third party mediator.
Communications have been ongoing since October.
The Superintendent’s attorney has confirmed as of early December to enter into mediation with a third party mediator.
There have been communications with the school committeeman’s attorney in early December regarding mediatiation and not again until late January however, there has NOT been any confirmation to enter into mediation with a third party mediator.
I also confirmed today with school’s attorney that there has been no correspondence or communication regarding confirmation by the school committeeman to enter into third party mediation.

GN: In a Conversation I had with Mr. Gitschier this morning he indicated that on January 23rd his lawyer responded to the offer of mediation with a stipulation that they wanted to see the “accusations” that the Supt. had against Mr. Gitschier before agreeing to go into mediation.
The question remains in my mind if the School District should be covering Mr. Gitschier’s expenses if these charges relate to his role as a School Committee person and what role does the District’s Legal Councilor Mr. Long have in the process?
