WILMINGTON, MA — Town Moderator Robert Peterson Jr. recently interviewed Wilmington School Committee candidate Rhonda Musikar-Rosner as part of WCTV’s 2017 Candidate Conversations series.
Musikar-Rosner, who has been living in town for about 10 years, had three boys in Wilmington Public Schools.
“I’ve been working in public schools for about 25 years now,” said Musikar-Rosner. “I got interested in running for School Committee because I see [the district] moving forward with social, emotional and mental health issues, and I want to see them keep moving forward.”
Musikar-Rosner is concerned about all the increasing stress and demands being placed on children in school.
“I want to ensure that we have policies and programs in place to help kids through their school year,” she added.
The biggest issue currently confronting the district, according to Musikar-Rosner, is filling the interim positions around the district — Interim Superintendent, Interim Special Education Director, Interim Middle School Principal, etc.
Musikar-Rosner is also concerned about the amount of homework students receive and the discrepancies in the homework between classes in the same grade.
She also believes that the primary role of the School Committee is hiring a qualified Superintendent that will lead Wilmington Schools in a positive direction.
Musikar-Rosner has been conducting lots of interviews and has been active on social media.
