BOE To Hold Special Meeting

After looking in vain on the Jan. 13 Board of Education agenda and on the district web site, I found the item I was seeking in today's legal notices in the Courier News.

The school board will meet at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Administration Building's auditorium to interview applicants for the board vacancy.

Four people met the filing date to apply for the vacancy created by the resignation of Vickey Sheppard, who won the seat in April 2008. One person will be selected to serve until April, when the unexpired term will be up for election along with three three-year terms.

The four applicants are Tammy Westbrook, Alicia Jones, Pamela Skorupski and Joseph Ruffin Sr.

Nomination forms for the April 21 election may be downloaded from the district web site and must be returned to Business Administrator Gary Ottmann by March 2.

The board will open its business meeting Tuesday at 6: 30 p.m., then will go into executive session until 8 p.m. when the public portion will resume. The full agenda is posted on the district web site. Presumably the board will name the selected candidate at the meeting.
