Two Region 14 Board of Ed members resign amid investigation of vaccine 'line jumping'

Amid accusations that Region 14 officials jumped the COVID-19 vaccine line, two Board of Education members have resigned.  The Newstimes reports that Pam Zmek and Janet Morgan cited differences with the administration and a family member’s health issue as reasons for the departures, effective last week.  Region 14 includes Woodbury and Bethlehem.  The Board of Ed is investigating whether administrators, central office staff, and school board members and their spouses were put ahead of teachers at a vaccine clinic last month.  Some teachers and school staff were vaccinated at that time.  Teachers have voted they have “no confidence” in the superintendent.  The Pomperaug Health District vaccinated more than 300 employees from Region 14, Region 15 and the Oxford school district before the state clarified that only residents 75 and older should be eligible when Phase 1b first opened. The clinic was allowed to go forward so that doses weren't wasted, but future clinics for school staff were canceled.
