As many of you have heard, we had three board members resign last night at the Board of Education meeting. The resignations were for various personal reasons and had nothing to do with the school district or the Board of Education.
The board will be filling these vacancies at their regularly scheduled November Board Meeting on November 9, 2020, at 6:00 p.m. The location will be determined by social distance guidelines and room capacity and will be shared later on our website. Two seats are for the remainder of the term that expires on December 31, 2020. The other seat will be an appointment starting in December and this appointee will serve until the next regular election (two years).
