February 12, 2011

BURRILLVILLE — When it comes to the public school teams, there aren’t too many folks in the state who are as big as fan of them as longtime coach Gary Rouleau.
That being noted, you can’t blame Rouleau if he’s been particularly excited about the truly outstanding season his Burrillville/Ponaganset co-op team is enjoying this winter.
The Broncos, who skated to an easy 7-0 triumph over the Barrington/Mount Hope co-op squad on Saturday night at the Cranston Ice Rink, have won five games in a row and sit in second place in the standings with a 10-2 record.

Competing in the hard-as-nails Large School Championship, Woonsocket finished fourth among the nine schools with a solid 51.5 points.

The committee has voted to draft a request for proposals (RFP) to hire a consulting firm to help the district in its search for a new school chief. At its meeting Thursday night, the committee approved a draft copy of the RFP, which means the district will advertise the bids next week.
A deadline for bids has been set for the first week of March.
