While Langston Hughes Academy’s staff prepares for the coming school year, its board of directors prepare for dissolution.

August 18, 2012 marks the final regular meeting of the school’s board as Langston Hughes Academy will now be exclusively governed by First Line Schools’ Board of Directors.

After having received managerial support and consultation from First Line for the 2012 school year, the school has begun its planned transition.

Board members laughed as they spoke with one another and said their thanks, managing to squeeze in one order of business concerning insurance liability during the turnover.

Should any business crop up requiring board deliberation, Langston Hughes will notify the public of its proposed meeting.

A reporter from The Lens was the only audience member at the meeting.
