DeRuosi’s Report Card School Superintendent Dr. David DeRuosi earns “proficient” grade in first year evaluation by School Committee By Mark E. Vogler

ll things considered, Saugus Public Schools Superintendent Dr. David DeRuosi, Jr. received an outstanding report card from School Committee members in his first evaluation since taking charge of the town’s public school system more than a year ago. In a summary report approved at a brief meeting Monday night, the committee voted 4-0 to accept an evaluation that concluded DeRuosi was “proficient” in four standards encompassing 13 professional practice goals the committee set for him.

A GOOD YEAR: Saugus Public Schools Superintendent David DeRuosi Jr. received a “proficient” evaluation from the School Committee this week. Members credited DeRuosi with helping to educate the community on the need for a new Middle-High School -- helping to sway town residents to approve the new school by a landslide in a June Special Election. (Saugus Advocate file photo by Mark E. Vogler)

Arthur Grabowski missed the session because he was on a vacation day. But his evaluation was considered along with those of his colleagues in a composite score that gave the superintendent an average of 3.8

in assessing progress toward meeting professional practice goals. “If you were going to give it a numerical grade, I’d say he was in the high B range – maybe a B-plus,” member Linda Gaieski told The Saugus Advocate after the meeting. “I think he did a very good job,” she said. The End-of-Cycle Summative Evaluation Report, which was compiled by School Committee Chair Jeannie Meredith, considered each of the four standards on a 1 to 5 scale, ranging from “did not meet”to“exceeded.”The numerical evaluation also measured “some progress,” 2; “significant progress,” 3; and “met,” 4. DeRuosi received a“proficient” rating in meeting the four professional practice goals: instructional leadership, management and operations, family and community engagement, and professional culture. The“proficient” rating means“professional practice is understood to be fully satisfactory.”“This is the rigorous expected level of performance,”according to the methodology for interpreting the evaluation. DeRuosi gave himself the same “proficient” assessment in self-evaluation of meeting professional practice goals. (See re-

as “Level 3,” a designation for the lowest performing 20 percent of school districts in Massachusetts. “Dr. DeRuosi has managed to bring leadership to the District which has been noticeably lacking in past administrations,”the committee noted in its composite comments prepared by Meredith. “He was an instrumental member of the New School Building Committee team that disseminated the information and facts to the community enabling them to make a well informed, educated and overwhelming decision on the need for a new school,” the committee chair noted in summarizing members’ remarks. “It should be noted that Superintendent DeRuosi has demonstrated an outstanding work ethic in his mission to accomplish the extremely ambitious 13 goals set before him by the School Committee,”the summary said. “On conclusion, Dr. DeRuosi’s overall aggregate evaluation rating is Proficient.” In addition, the summary recommended ways for the superintendent to improve his overall performance: • “We would like to see more superintendent visibility in all schools. • Standard and uniform protocol for school visitation needs to be enforced to ensure the safety of students and staff in ALL School buildings. • Dr. DeRuosi needs to continue to work on supervision, evaluation, culture, curriculum assessment and climate in the Saugus Public Schools. • Would like to see support of existing initiatives as well as the formulation of aggressive wellness initiative addressing the social and emotional wellness of our student body.” “A work in progress” While praising DeRuosi for his first year at the helm, Gaieski called his overall performance “a work in progress.” “I look forward to him working with us and I see more advancement next year,” Gaieski said in an interview after the meeting. “His job is by no means done – as the Carpenters’ song goes,

‘We’ve only just begun,’”she said. “But the man clearly did his due diligence this year. There are some things that I’m not thoroughly satisfied – like the writing program … He found the most success in improving the operation aspects. Now, I expect he’s going to get down to the nuts and bolts of improving the school district,” she said. School Committee Vice-Chair Peter Manoogian said DeRuosi’s performance was impressive in many ways, considering “there were so many operational issues that had to be tackled.” “He did deal with two of the chronically troublesome fiscal matters that have been plaguing the school district over the years,”Manoogian said, referring to the lack of financial controls on the food service and athletic departments – issues that were the subject of audits and measures to curb poor fiscal management early in DeRuosi’s administration. “But we do need more communication from the superintendent. We need reports from him on problems he sees and steps he’s taking to correct them,” said Manoogian. Gaieski said the superintendent’s “biggest accomplishment” during his first year was “educating the town” on the school district’s need for a new combination Middle-High School to be built at the current site of the Saugus High School, which has been in danger of losing its accreditation in recent years. More than 70 percent of the nearly 5,000 voters who went to the polls in June favored a new $160.7 million MiddleHigh School built to accommodate 1,360 students in grades 6 through 12. Recent reimbursement amounts range from 40 percent to 57.2 percent, based on documents provided by the state. The project, which the town initially said would be eligible for a minimum 53 percent reimbursement by the Massachusetts School Building Authority, includes a multipurpose athletic field and track.

A pay increase request Superintendent DeRuosi calls for meeting with School Committee to consider making athletic director full-time job By Mark E. Vogler

T

he School Committee has scheduled a special meeting for Tuesday to consider whether to make the athletic director’s position a full time job. A meeting has been scheduled for 6 p.m. next Tuesday (Aug. 8) at the request of Sau-

gus Public Schools Superintendent David DeRuosi Jr., who is recommending that the position be returned to a full-time position, as it was several years ago. “Due to a level of ambiguity at our last meeting on June 22, 2017, while it was discussed to provide for a 1.0 FTE, it was never changed in

our budget,” DeRuosi advised School Committee members in an email this week. “Based on the last time Saugus had a full time AD the salary was $72,000. I believe this position, with a full time clerk, should range from $65,000$72,000 based on experience. It is fair salary,” he said. The superintendent has

requested that committee members consider one of two options: • Either a half-time position for athletic director or a fulltime position. • A salary: $72,000-$65,000 if the position if the committee votes to make the position full-time, or $32,500$36,000 if it remains a halftime position. “While I will still recommend a 1.0 FTE for this position, which reflects the NESDEC Report sanctioned by this committee, and I believe a full time AD will better serve the students in the district, I am prepared to respond to either vote of this committee,” DeRuosi advised the committee. The superintendent also thanked the committee for “the favorable review in my evaluation.” I believe as a School Committee and superintendent we did a great amount of good work which ended in a historical vote in June to build a brighter future for this community,” DeRuosi said.

“We need to keep this goal of building a better district in our line of vision moving forward,” he said. Pay raise for current committee member? DeRuosi noted a vote “is needed to move forward on the AD position.” The agenda posted for Tuesday night ’s meeting by School Committee Chair Jeanie Meredith notes that public comment will be taken on the proposal and “action is needed” regarding the athletic director. DeRuosi’s request comes at a time that one of the committee’s members -- Elizabeth Marchese -- is being considered for the position. Marchese -- who previously applied for the position four years ago before she was elected -- said she has an opinion from the state Ethics Commission that she’s done nothing improper or illegal. “I made sure it was appropriate before I applied,” Mar-

RIDING | from page 1 – who lost their lives to cancer. Bottoms is one of five Saugus residents who will be pedaling this weekend in several different rides as part of this year’s PanMass Challenge (PMC). She’ll be among more than 6,000 cyclists from 41 states and eight countries who will be riding to raise money for cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The bike-a-thon, which was founded in 1980, raised more than $47 million last year as riders from age 15 to 84 participated. “One morning in 2014, while riding my route a complete stranger, who just happened to also be a cyclist and has done the PMC himself, approached me and suggested I try riding for the PMC,”recalled Bottoms, who is preparing for her second consecutive PMC ride. “I am transgender – male to female – and lost my best friend, Caroline Stone, also transgender, to stage 4 colon cancer in 2013,

and saw this as an opportunity to both honor her and contribute something I am good at to a great cause,” Bottoms said. “I also ride in honor of my girlfriend’s [Stone’s] father, Richard Touchette, who passed away from cancer six years ago,” she said. Honoring their memories Stone died five days after her 41st birthday. Her dad passed away from cancer two years earlier, according to Bottoms. “Both Caroline and Richard were very important people in our lives, so I ride in honor of their memories,” she said. “Now, just this February, Caroline’s sister Victoria passed as well … If this has taught me anything, it is that cancer can strike any one of us at any time. But I also came to realize that together we can make a difference to create a positive change for all of us!” she said. Bottoms is a local radio personality and former activist for

trans-equality, and adds that she has “lost my fair share of friends and family to cancer – including my uncles Ed and John.” “I’ll be riding the Sunday one-day Wellesley-to-Wellesley course. It begins at Babson College, goes to Gillette Stadium and then back to Babson College,” Bottoms said. “The entire ride is just under 48 miles. Last year, with designated pit stops, it took me about six hours to complete. I am hoping to do it in five [hours] this year.” A 1985 Chelsea High School graduate, she has lived in Saugus the last 14 years. She is proud of her past advocacy for transgender rights. “I am transgender [male to female] and believe that I may be the first openly transgendered rider with PMC,” Bottoms said. “I am very comfortable in my skin with being transgender. I actually don’t do much advocacy any longer … But I did have a huge role in fighting against trans-discrimination a few years back, and have been on radio shows, like Dan Rea’s ‘NightSide,’

Jon ‘Keller At Large’ and ‘Loren and Wally Morning Show’ to talk about it,” she said. The Pan-Mass Challenge is one of two bike rides for cancer research that Bottoms will take part in as a rider this year. On September 17, she will also be riding 25 miles for “A Reason to Ride” in Danvers, to raise funds for cancer research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. Other Saugonians share cancer stories Like virtually all of the PMC participants who will be hopping on bicycles tomorrow (Saturday, Aug. 5) and Sunday (Aug. 6), John Mallette is dedicating his ride to a loved who has been battling cancer or lost the battle to the dreaded disease. “I made the commitment last August to ride in the PMC in honor of my sister-in-law Kathy, who has [battled] lung cancer since April 2015.” Mallette, 63, said of his first PMC ride – a 25-mile trip on Sunday from Wellesley to Patriot Place in Foxborough – “As of July 20th, 2017, I change my reason to in memory of. Kathy lost her battle,” he told The Saugus Advocate. Kathy grew up in Saugus and was a member of the Saugus High School Class of 1971, he noted. “Watching her fight to over-

Page 7 come this disease the last several years has inspired me to help raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to help find a cure for all cancers,” Mallette wrote on his website recently. “In fact, last year 100% of rider-raised revenue went directly to support the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s tireless commitment to finding a cure,” he said. Three other Saugus residents have posted their intentions on the PMC website: • Lori Mackey, who will be riding 25 miles on Sunday from Wellesley to Patriot Place. “For the second year, I will help tackle cancer one mile at a time and join hundreds of other cyclists in the 38th Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC),” Mackey wrote. “Cancer is still a terrible disease. Each year we seem to be impacted by it more and more. There’s not one person in my life that hasn’t been touched by this horrific disease in one way or another, myself included. Watching someone fight cancer is something I hope becomes a thing of the past, and I’m doing everything I can to help find a cure,” she said. • Andrew Cacciola, who will be taking the two-day ride from Sturbridge to Provincetown Inn. “I’m a proud supporter of the PMC because it is leading a

chese told The Saugus Advocate yesterday. “When Mike Nelson gave his notice, the first thing I did -- I went to the Ethics Commission to see if it was appropriate. And then I got the decision and asked them to write me an official position,” she said. Nelson, the former Saugus High School’s Assistant Principal and Athletic Director, resigned at the end of June to become the new Athletic Director at Greater Lawrence Technical School in Andover. The position that Nelson had been doing on a halftime basis was increased to a full-time position in the July 5 job posting. But a vote by the School Committee is needed to make it official, according to DeRuosi. Marchese, who is completing the final year of first twoyear term, confirmed that she recently applied for the position and was interviewed last week by a screening committee that began meeting with applicants. “I applied before in 2013

when Rob O’Leary got the job,” Marchese said. Marchese provided a copy of the state Ethics Commission opinion to The Saugus Advocate. “Nothing in the conflict of interest law prohibits you from serving on the School Committee at the same time you are applying for the position of Athletic Director for the Saugus Public Schools,” Ethics Commission staff attorney Amy Nee wrote Marchese in an email dated July 20. Nee noted that a provision of the Conflict of Interest Law requires a member of a municipal board to resign from the board in order to be eligible for a position which the

board both appoints and supervises. That provision also requires the remaining board members to wait 30 days after the board member resigned before considering the board member’s application. “This provision does not apply to you under the circumstances you have described. The School Committee does not appoint or supervise the Athletic Director,” Nee wrote in her opinion. “ The Superintendent or possibly a principal has these responsibilities. Consequently, the conflict of interest law does not require you to resign from your School Committee position while you apply for the Athletic Director position,” Nee said.

An interview with Saugus Public Schools’ new Executive Director of Pupil Personnel Services Editor’s Note: For this week’s interview, we sat down with Dawn E. Trainor, who last Friday officially became the new Executive Director of Pupil Personnel Services for Saugus Public Schools. Trainor, a 1985 Saugus High School graduate who was also president of her class, replaces Lisa Howard, who resigned to accept the position of interim superintendent of Winthrop Public Schools. Formerly, Trainor was Interim Assistant Principal at Saugus High School. Trainor, who has lived in town all of her life, married another Saugonian – Thomas Trainor – a member of the Saugus High School Class of 1984. He is park supervisor at Camp Nihan, which is run by the state Department of Conservation and Recreation. They have raised three children – all graduated from Saugus High – Jack (2017), Thomas (2013) and Taylor Ann (2012). Dawn Trainor received her Bachelor of Science degree in Sports Management from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst in 2006. She received her Master of Education degree in Special Education (2013) from Salem State University in Salem, Mass.

Trainor began her education career in 2004 as a paraprofessional at Saugus High, assisting classroom teachers with instruction to students with disabilities, in inclusion and life skills classroom settings. Inspired by the job, she returned to college to complete her bachelor’s degree that had been interrupted when she decided to have children. After receiving her bachelor’s degree, she worked five years as a special education teacher at Saugus High. She then worked five years as the Special Education Department Team Leader at Saugus High. She also assumed the positions of Extended School Year Director (2014-16) and MCAS Administrator – After School Program (2015-16). Over the past decade, she has been involved with special education in various roles in the district. Her school leadership involvement includes participation on the Saugus Public Schools District-Wide MSBA Educational Planning Committee - Special Education, Saugus High School MSBA Educational Planning Committee - Special Education, Saugus High School Instructional Support Team Chair, NEASC Re-

porting Committee, Technology Advising Committee - Saugus Public Schools, Superintendent Search Committee - Saugus Public Schools, New Teacher Mentor Program - Saugus High School and as Peer Mentor Program Facilitator Saugus High School. Trainor is licensed by the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education for the following: Special Education Administrator at all levels, Supervisor/ Director of Special Education at all levels, Principal/Assistant Principal for grades 9-12, Sheltered English Immersion as an administrator, Moderate Disabilities for grades 5-12 and Severe Disabilities at all levels. Some highlights of this week’s interview follow.

A UNANIMOUS CHOICE: Dawn E. Trainor, Saugus Public Schools’ new Executive Director of Pupil Personnel Services, at her desk this week at the Saugus Public Schools Administrative Offices at the historic Roby School Building. The School Committee voted 5-0 last Friday to approve her appointment to the position that oversees all student support programs. (Saugus Advocate photo by Mark E. Vogler)

Q: Okay, Dawn. What is the most challenging aspect of your job that you have just been appointed to? A: What I would say, is just acclimating to all of the daily responsibilities of this job, as the scope of them will certainly be a little bit more than I’m used to

S

augus Public Schools Superintendent Dr. David DeRuosi, Jr. completed a little more than a third of the goals he worked on during his first year on the job, according to the self-evaluation repor t he recently submitted to the School Committee. Overall, DeRuosi gave himself “proficient” scores for each of the four standards encompassing 13 individual goals he set soon after taking charge of the town’s public education system last July 1. This mirrored the composite evaluation of “proficient” in all four standards approved this week by the School Committee. (See related story “DeRuosi’s Repor t Card.”) But DeRuosi marked himself as “exemplary” for his “General Work Ethic Rating,” in the document he authored titled “Final Reflection FY 16-FY 17 School Year School Committee Goals.” “All of these goals were accomplished while completing the daily requirements of a superintendent,” DeRuosi wrote in a summary comment on nine accomplishments for “Work beyond my original SC Goals for FY16FY17.”

Expires 9-15-17

Adv.

In that summary, he noted: • “I walked into open negotiations on 3 contracts and have closed all three. • Worked to develop Educational Plan for MSBA (Massachusetts School Building Authority), met all benchmarks laid out by MSBA for this project, became an active member of the Building Committee, facilitated meetings on the Building Project within the community, and worked closely with Town Manager to go out into the community to talk about the plan. • Took lead role in working with HFMH facilitator Mr. Locker to ensure meetings were being held in district with staff. I further worked with Mr. Locker to ensure follow-up meetings would happen in district and copresented with him (A new building project requires a great amount of superintendent attention.) • Will continue to work with Booster Club, Youth Sports Group and HS athletics to ensure proper policies were being followed. • Continue Vehicle Maintenance. • Based on a motion of the SC, I originated an All Day KTask force and produced a report to SC on the feasibility of implementing All Day K. • I have met all requests of SC members in a timely manner. • Met and have managed all requirements of this district to date. • Involved community members by invitation to attend meeting and special community presentations.”

Here’s are some excerpts from what DeRuosi had to say about each of the four standards categorizing the goals. Standard I: Instructional Leadership SC Goal #1 Discrepanc y analysis of elementary curriculum will occur by Feb 2017. Status: Completed. Reflection: “Solid work done in this area by my elementary principals … We have a solid map to work f ro m . . . . m ov i n g t h e E d ucation Plan from a document to prac tice in the district.” SC Goal #2 Written/digital curriculum guides using a consistent format by grade/ subject matter including content, lessons, objectives and assessments linked to Mass Frameworks. Status: Ongoing (Multi-year Goal which is now impacted by the future redesign of district and implementation of MSBA approved Educational Plan) Reflection: “This goal is ongoing and will continue to be a priority of the district moving forward. State frameworks are also in flux at this time and as a district will make the needed adjustments. SC Goal #3 Develop philosophy, approach and grade level curriculum guide for writing. Status: Ongoing. Reflection: “I recognize the development of the writing program for Saugus Public Schools was ‘bogged’ down for some years. I believe we made significant progress this year. We plan to implement in the FY17

same time, in 1979, and might have lived within walking distance of each other. Ranger Paul, of the Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site, was finishing his Master of Business Administration at the State University of New York at Albany. Meanwhile, I was working out of the statehouse bureau for the Albany Times Union newspaper, covering legislative and government stories. My editor was Harry Rosenfeld, who was one of the editors who worked over Woodward and Bernstein at The Washington Post. In those days, I was paying $115 a month for a brownstone apartment within walking distance to the State Library. And those days, the $280 a week I was making seem like great pay. Of course, the dollar could buy you a lot more in 1979. I didn’t have to worry about getting in a car and driving after having a few drinks, because a watering hole called the Bleecker – where the lawmakers used to congregate to discuss legislation over booze – was within walking distance, too. So, Ranger Paul probably hit a lot of the restaurants and joints that I did.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, August 4, 2017

ASK | from page 9 as assistant principal. I think the background that I have will certainly come to play and help me with this. However, just like anything else, anything new, even though you require a learning curve, you have to get the hang of it. Q: You’ve got about, like, four or five areas of responsibility here. And not just the special education component. A: Yes. So it’s special education, bilingual education, any matters pertaining to pupil personnel across the district, special education and regular education, a 504 piece [a 504 plan helps a child with special health care needs who doesn’t qualify for special education services to fully participate in school], homelessness – that’s a big problem and something that needs to be carefully addressed. Q: And as far as your background, you’ve got the special education. A: Correct. I have a Master’s degree in special education. I have taught in both inclusion and substantially separate settings, so that has kind of given me a wide variety of different disabilities and how to strategize around accommodating for those students. I served as a paraprofessional as well, and an ETL, which is an Evaluation Team Leader. And that’s the person who really looks for policy and procedure in the meetings and making sure that all parties are present, all services are documented correctly and are in line with what the student needs. Q: What is the biggest challenge you face of all of those areas going in? A: Honestly, probably just the scope of the job. There’s going to be a lot that I know, will be sort of “Oh, I’m doing that job, too.” It will be the scope of the job. Q: On any given day, if somebody comes into the district with special needs, all of a sudden, you could have a halfmillion responsibility that the school district assumes. A: You got it. Yes. Correct. Special Education numbers are always in flux. They need to be watched carefully. The budget, as you know and you have probably heard at the School Committee meetings, is of concern. It’s a day-to-day thing. You need to make sure you’re staying on top of that. And that can be challenging. Sure. Q: Any advice you received from your predecessor [Lisa Howard]? A: Sure. I think that she has given me a wealth of knowledge, actually. I worked as an ATL [Assistant Team Leader] right under her for about three years. I know that she came with a wealth of experience herself and she shared a lot with me,

so I’m sure I will be putting that to good use. Q: What’s the best advice she gave you for the job? A: I think, probably, it wasn’t direct advice. It was more or less “Take it day by day and make sure you are paying attention. Don’t come in and be overwhelmed and try to do everything at once. Just kind of take it slow and steady.” Q: Now – the homeless – it’s an area where the numbers can change quickly. A: That, I’m not as well-versed on yet. I will need to get to that. I do know that is something we will be concerned with. However, as far as hard and fast numbers, I am not certain of that yet. Yes, that is something I need to attend to. Q: And the particular challenge there? A: Just being compassionate and knowing who needs and what and getting it to them. Obviously, we have to be costeffective in how we do things, but these are people, you know. They have needs and we need to be cognizant of that and compassionate about it. Q: Some of them may be Saugus residents and some of them may be from some other communities. A: Absolutely. Q: And they just happen to wind up with the vouchers for the particular hotel and become part of the town’s responsibility. A: And that’s okay. That’s part of what we do. It’s just looking at those numbers again and trying to be cost-effective as possible. However, being as compassionate as you can be. They deserve that. Q: Looking back on your career, what’s the experience that best prepares you for this position? A: I think what happened – the way that I have seen it from different lenses – seeing this job through a different lens. As a paraprofessional to the teacher to the ETL. Taking that special education background and serving as an assistant principal served me enormously. I really believe that whole special education piece is worth its weight in gold. And now I bring all of that to the table, plus expanding my scope of it as an assistant principal. Stepping away from the day-to-day special education function to perform that job, still with a close eye on special education kind of even rounded it out a bit more for me. So, I believe I am bringing a unique perspective. I have developed a lot of positive working relationships and a lot of trust with people in the community and in the school system. And I intend to continue to build on that, and I think it will serve me well in this role. Q: And things have changed a lot since 1985 when you gradu-

ated from Saugus High School? A: Yes, they have. Q: Had you ever envisaged being in a position like you are now? A: No. Never. It’s just something that I became passionate about when I became a permanent substitute. I worked with special education population heavily, and I decided from there that I would get my credentials and continue to build on it, and it just kind of happened. But there’s nothing more rewarding than serving in your own community and giving back. It’s been so good to me and my family. Q: What has been the most rewarding experience for you while working in Saugus Public Schools? A: It’s probably been building those relationships with students and their families and just earning their trust and earning that good back-and-forth piece. Certainly, it has been wonderful for me, all of the professional relationships I have had as well. I very much so enjoyed that. But I have taken a lot of pride in my approach to special education and the compassion that I share with families and students. And I think again – I probably mentioned this before – that has served me well, and I don’t lose sight of that. Q: When you graduated from

Saugus High in 1985, what did you have in mind at that point? A: At that point, I was heavily into fitness. I went to school for sports management. I pursued a bachelor’s degree with that, and from there, I became a mom. And having become a mom and donated my time to the classrooms and a class mom and all of that, I just realized how much I loved working with students and those with special needs in particular. I had a knack for it. And that’s what kind of got me on my course, you know? Q: Did you marry a Saugonian? A: Yeah, I did. He graduated in 1984; my husband Tom. We have three kids. They came up through the school system. My youngest just graduated last June and that’s been a positive, wonderful experience as well. So, when you see it coming from all of those different angles, you see how it’s so rewarding to serve here in this room. But also having that benefit of having worked in that room with these families. Q: And you were class president? A: Yeah, that was fun. Q: Any other things you look back on that helped? Were you a member of the National Honor Society? A: I was involved with a lot of different things. No, I was not an

Page 15 honor graduate. I was an average student. I didn’t apply myself as much as I could have. But when I became interested in getting my master’s degree, for instance, I graduated 3.85 in my class. So, I think once you put your mind to something and get a passion for it, there’s no stopping you. You just keep going. But, yes, I had a great time in high school. Q: As class president, there’s a lot of responsibility that goes there. A: Yes. Correct. Q: Did you get to speak at … A: Graduation? Yes. At the commencement I did. During various assemblies. As much as they do now, it’s a lot similar, actually. Although, the civic-minded students that I see nowadays, they’re so inspiring. They really have that full community feel where, when we were back in school, I think it was just more of the school. I see the students breaking out. With the community service piece, I see that as a really positive element. It comes together a lot more for students nowadays, which is nice. We’re breeding those students who can then serve their community, and hopefully, one day in a different and more broader capacity. Q: A good part of your job is

Joseph D. Cataldo “YOUR FINANCIAL FOCUS”

TRUST PLANNING

V

irtually no one wants to bequeath and devise assets to their children only to subsequently find out that those hard-earned assets are later to be lost in a divorce. One way to deal with this possibility is to leave these assets to your children via a trust. A properly drafted trust is more about providing children flexibility and protection with the hope of not creating unmanageable limitations. Most people look to set up a trust that ends at some particular point in time, typically when a parent feels the child will be mature enough to handle money. In many cases, one third of the trust estate is distributed at age 25, another third at age 30 and a final third at age 35. Others prefer one half at age 30 and the remaining trust assets at age 35. Typically, upon the death of both parents, a child who is old enough and mature enough will be named a successor trustee to carry out the terms of the trust. If the child has not reached a certain age and a certain level of maturity, the parents will often appoint a third party trustee to administer the terms of the trust and to make distributions on behalf of the child such as for health expenses, educational expenses, housing expenses, etc. Parents are often concerned that if assets are distributed directly to children upon death, any one of the children could subsequently get divorced only to see those inherited assets become part of a divorce proceeding. Leaving assets to children via a trust does have the benefit of “spendthrift” provisions designed to provide better protection to the children in the event of an ongoing divorce proceeding or prior to such a proceeding when things aren’t going so well in the marriage. Consequently, depending on the particular family and all of its dynamics, a family trust could be drafted to last longer, long after a child reaches the age of say 35. This is another reason why in some situations, naming a third party trustee might be better than

naming a child as trustee. If the child has discretion to make distributions to himself or herself upon the death of both parents, then a probate judge in a divorce proceeding might order the child to make such a distribution representing that child’s share of the parent’s estate, thereby bringing those assets into the divorce proceeding. Trusts can often be classified based upon their distribution provisions as being either support trusts or discretionary trusts. Each state varies in its interpretation of the trust terms. Discretionary trusts will tend to protect children in the event of a future divorce and the potential alimony and child support issues inherent in such a proceeding. A support trust may very well cause a problem for a child because the court may require the trustee to make a distribution from the trust in order to satisfy what the court believes to be a “support” obligation of the child, whether it be in the form of alimony or child support. Consequently, a pure “discretionary” trust would seem to offer the most protection in these situations with a third party trustee serving as opposed to a child (particularly the child that would most likely be the one to be involved in such a proceeding based upon facts and circumstances known to the parents at the time of the trust creation). A traditional “support” trust might not always be the way to go, as including language in such a trust that states that the child’s “standard of living” is to be maintained, might somehow lead a court to interpret that language as equating to an obligation on the part of a trustee to make a distribution to a child in order to satisfy an alimony or child support obligation. This is in contrast to simply providing income or principal to the child in order that the child have sufficient assets in order to be able to pay for his or her own food, shelter, medical expenses, etc. In our litigious society, we all have to be very concerned with lawsuits originating from any source and the more protection contained in a trust (some may argue) the better, even at the expense of limiting children’s access to the trust assets for which the parents funded into trust for their benefit. In any event, it is important to make informed decisions. What’s right for one family is not necessarily right for another family. Different circumstances, beliefs and ideologies will surely result in different choices for each family. And in the end there are never any guarantees.

A BC HERO It is not often that a Boston University Alumna speaks highly of a former Eagle, but Thomas “Red” Martin was too important for a Terrier to overlook. He was born in Somerville, and the family moved to Cambridge, where he was a stellar athlete at the Cambridge high school. Snooks Kelly was a teacher at Cambridge at the time, and he convinced Red that a Jesuit would be best for him, rather than going to Harvard, which also accepted him. Red was a senior captain who played 58 minutes of the Beanpot Championship game in 1961. He missed two minutes while in the penalty box for slashing. He was named the Beanpot MVP for his winning goal against the Crimson. He also won the Walter Brown Award as the outstanding college hockey player of Division 1 for New England. Boston College retired his

number 15 hockey jersey. He later served as a BC Assistant Coach for three seasons and was named to the U.S. 1962 National Hockey team and the 1962 and 1964 U.S. Olympic Team. He was a first baseman on the 1960 and 1961 BC baseball team and played in the College World Series in Omaha. His father died when Red was only two years old, and when his mother remarried he took the last name of his stepfather. He grew up in church housing in Cambridge. From his time as a third grader until his senior year at BC, he sold newspapers outside St. Peter’s Church to help his family economically. He would play hockey on Saturday, pick up the newspapers at 5:30 Sunday morning and attend the 6:30 Mass. Thomas was the founder and Chairman of the Cormer Productions marketing firm

A: Yes, that’s a wonderful idea. Families need support. They need guidance. They need an ear to bounce things off. There are times when parents are really struggling with their child, so I’m really glad they’ve provided support for them. Q: Any kind of game plan, moving forward? A strategy to your job? What are some of the things you are going to do? A: Yes. I want to make sure I’m keeping close contact with the superintendent, according to the mission and the vision of the schools. This is something where I am going to have to find my own way of how I am going to approach this job, but I want to hear from people. I want to hear from all of the stakeholders, for sure. The CPAC – which is special education parent advisory council – a fantastic group; I want to meet up with them and get their ideas about what they think is

as troubleshooter? A: Oh, yeah – problem-solving. Q: And what are the biggest challenges of those? A: That, I wouldn’t even know yet, because I haven’t had it come across my desk. But I know from past experience, usually relying on your reasoning skills is huge. We need to use common sense with our decision-making. We need to use compassion and deep thought, but at the same time, there are times you need to be decisive. You have to know what you have to know and go with it. Q: There are a lot more challenges now, being a student. You have the two adjustment counselors in this year’s budget to address students with emotional needs, for example.

Careful listening is how I plan to go about this. Q: Any new ideas or programs that you want to bring into the position? A: I am passionate about program development. I have worked on that in the past, particularly at the high school level with social and emotional needs of students – behavioral needs of students – intellectual disability and of that nature. And usually that is a separate programing. I am definitely passionate about that and will keep a close eye on that and continue to improve upon the programs and services that we offer our students.

The Nutritionist Corner

Wake up to Breakfast

W

e have all heard that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” and studies suggest there is truth to that claim. Making breakfast a priority every morning is well worth the effort. And it’s simpler than you think. While we sleep the body uses its stored energy as it goes into a fasting state. Breakfast is our chance to replenish nutrients after a night’s sleep and kick start the metabolism (metabolism refers to all the chemical processes by which nutrients are used to support life). National Health And Nutrition Surveys have identified specific nutrients many of us do not get enough of: vitamin A, D, E and C, as well as folate, calcium, magnesium, fiber and potassium. A breakfast consisting of wholesome food can help us get more of these vital nutrients. Breakfast does not need to be eaten immediately after

arising. The ideal time to consume breakfast is up to two hours after waking. Take five to ten minutes in the morning and enjoy a healthy breakfast and be ready for the day ahead. If time is tight, take breakfast on the road, or prepare it the night before. Pick up a healthy option low on fat, sugar and salt if eating outside the home. Choosing nutrient rich foods is key. Tips for choosing healthy options: An adequate breakfast should be made from at least three food groups. Fruits, vegetables, grains, proteins and dairy all have their place at the breakfast table as long as they are from healthy food sources. Here are some examples. - a bowl of low sugar cereal (not more that 6 g per serving) with milk and sprinkled with dried fruits and nuts. - English muffin with chunky peanut butter - Two egg omelet with veggies, made the night before - Overnight oatmeal – com-

Dear Savvy Senior, I’m worried about my 72-year-old mother who has been taking the opioid medication Vicodin for her hip and back pain for more than a year. I fear she’s becoming addicted to the drug but I don’t know what to do. Concerned Daughter Dear Concerned, The opioid epidemic is a national problem that is hitting people of all ages, including millions of older Americans. Here’s what you should know and do to help your mother. The Cause The main reason opioid addiction has become such a problem for people over age 50 is because over the past two decades, opioids have become a commonly prescribed (and often overprescribed) medication by doctors for all different types of pain like arthritis, cancer, neurological diseases and other illnesses that become more common in later life. Nearly one-third of all Medicare patients – almost 12 million people – were prescribed opioid painkillers by their physicians in 2015. That same year, 2.7 million Americans over age 50 abused painkillers. Taken as directed, opioids can manage pain effectively when used for a short amount of time. But with longterm use, people need to be screened and monitored because around 5 percent of those treated will develop an addiction disorder and abuse the drugs. Signs of Addiction Your mother may be addicted to opioids if she can’t stop herself from taking the drug, and her tolerance continues to go up. She may also be addicted if she keeps using opioids without her doctor’s consent, even if it’s causing her problems with her health, money, family or friends. If you think your mom’s addicted, ask her to see a doctor for an evaluation. Go to the family or prescribing physician, or find a specialist through the American Society of Addiction Medicine (see ASAM.org) or the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP.org). It’s also important to be positive and encouraging. Addiction is a medical matter, not a character flaw. Repeated use of opioids actually changes the brain. Treatments Treatment for opioid addiction is different for each person, but the main goal is to help your mom stop using the drug and avoid using it again in the future. To help her stop using the drug, her doctor can prescribe certain medicines to help relieve her withdrawal symptoms and control her cravings. These medicines include methadone (often used to treat heroin addiction), buprenorphine, and naltrexone. After detox, behavioral treatments such as individual counseling, group or family counseling, and cognitive therapy can help her learn how to manage depression, avoid the drug, deal with cravings, and heal damaged relationships. For assistance, call the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration confidential help line at 800662-4357, or see SAMHSA.gov. They can connect you with treatment services in your state that can help your mom. Also, if you find that your mom has a doctor who prescribes opioids in excess or without legitimate reason, you should report him or her to your state medical board, which licenses physicians.

dren grown as they are, I anticipate that I will probably have a little more time on my hands to kind of focus in on my career. Q: How many years for you in the Saugus Public Schools? A: Officially in ’04, but prior to that, I was in a lot of classrooms as a class mom, with my kids growing up and coming through. So – when I realized – after a few years of doing that, I said, “I’m going to become personnel. I want to do this.” And that’s where the para position began in ’04. When you have a knack for something, it kind of shows. And it just went from there. It was a passion for me. Q: What’s your hobby when you are not doing school-related work? A: Just reading – going out. I love to go out. My husband and I go out quite a bit. We just relax and go get something to eat or have a few drinks, get together with friends. That’s huge for me. Whatever fun comes up, I’m fine. I’m not an avid anything, I would say. I’m just one of those people who kind of goes with the flow, and whatever feels good, we’re going to do. Q: Anything else that you would like to share? A: I would like to thank Dr. DeRuosi for his support of me and recommending me. I would like to thank the School Committee. The 5-0 vote [approving her appointment last Friday] was very refreshing

and I am very thankful for that. And I just want to let the townspeople know, especially parents of special education students and 504 students, that I have an eye on them, I’m thinking of them and I want to continue to improve what we offer our students. That’s my main focus. And I realize that I have a little bit to learn, but that’s okay. I’ll do it. Q: And you plan to have community meetings with parents? A: Yes. That’s something I will set up. One of the first things I do will be to meet with the CPAC. So we’ll have a meet and greet with parents who want to participate. I’ll be available for questions and answers, that kind of thing – meeting with administrators – meeting with parents, wherever they need to be. Q: Anything with a website that’s been set up? A: We do have our website that’s been worked on. I know that needs a little attention still. I think that’s a work in progress. I wouldn’t mind sending out some kind of newsletter, maybe quarterly from the Office of Pupil Personnel – just kind of updates on what’s happening in the district and highlighting the goals and everything – just letting parents know, because they don’t always have the opportunity to know. Q: Anything else? A: I think we are good. I’m just excited to get going.

Q: Anything else that you would like to share about yourself, this position, challenges and things you like to do? A: I like to read, especially about work-related stuff. I know that probably sounds boring, but I am an avid reader of many different things work-related. Q: What do you do as a pastime? A: I like to hang out with friends. I like to be with my family.

VA & MAMMOGRAMS

T

he VA Women Veterans Health Program has adopted guidelines published by the American Cancer Society regarding mammograms. The guidelines apply to women at average risk for breast cancer and in adopting the guidelines the VA will now give women Veterans the choice to receive breast cancer screenings starting at age 40. In addition to adopting this recommended guideline the VA has established a breast cancer registry to provide patient-specific information about breast cancer screening, treatment and test results. At present 76% of women Veterans ages 40 to 49 who are enrolled in the VA health care system receive mammograms through the VA. Adopting this guideline is a further step by the VA in improving health care for women Veterans who comprise an ever growing part of the military. Be sure to discuss this adopted guideline with your physician. Thank you for your service.

charge to beat cancer,” Cacciola wrote on the PMC website. “In fact, last year 100 percent of rider-raised revenue went directly to support the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s tireless commitment to finding a cure,” he said. • Chelsea Phelps, the subject of a cover story in last week’s Saugus Advocate, will be taking the two-day ride from Wellesley to Provincetown. Phelps said originally she hadn’t planned on riding this year and was going to volunteer instead at the Dighton Rehoboth lunch stop. “A few weeks ago right around Christmas, we found out that my aunt, who has been volunteering for the past few years, has breast cancer. I registered to ride. This year’s for her fight!,” Phelps declared. “I ride because I can. When I get tired, I remember those who can’t ride, what they would give to have this simple gift I take for granted, and I ride harder for them. I know they would do the same for me,” she said For more details about PanMass Challenge, go to the website http://www.pmc.org/.
