The Cazenovia Board of Education last week filled the fifth grade teaching position in the middle school that was added the week before school started — but not until the board had a lengthy discussion over district hiring policies and whether or not the board itself should get involved in selecting position candidates. Such a change — the board currently only approves or rejects new hires put forth by the superintendent after being selected by a committee — would fundamentally alter the hiring policy and give the board a responsibility that is currently held only by the superintendent.

The action will lower fifth grade class sizes by about five students per class, but it also means that some fifth graders who already received their homeroom assignments will have to be switched to a different class.
