That's the suggestion chairman EuRim Chun made on Thursday.

Here's some Marbleheaders are reacting to Chun's call for mass resignations: Sandy Lane Cross wrote on the Marblehead Patch Facebook page, "It takes a lot…

Marblehead's superintendent, Greg Maass, says that "regrettably, my relationship with the School Committee has been tense."
In a self-initiated, mid-year self-evaluation, Superintendent Greg Maass told the School Committee members Thursday night that "regrettably, my relationship with the School Committee has been tense." He offered to use the self-evaluation process "to find a way to have a productive conversation to get us back on track."
