On Friday afternoon, the School Board received word that Chairperson Michael Saucier had submitted his resignation from the Board, citing health concerns. The Board has accepted applicants for the other current vacancy created by the recent resignation of Vice Chairperson Jenn Ganem and has not at this point deliberated on a process or timeline for naming successors to these positions. The Board will consider both resignations in public session during their meeting tomorrow, Tuesday August 24. The Board does retain the ability to continue to meet and carry out their duties with a 3/5 quorum.
The Board will conduct a reorganizational process at the start of the meeting on 8/24 to select a temporary chairperson to serve until the full board can choose a chair to serve until March of 2022.
