The following is a message received from Jonathan Baum, member of the District 202 School Board:
“Under our Board Policy, three members of the Board can request the calling of a special meeting. On Wednesday, June 24, Doug Holt, Gretchen Livingston, and I requested the calling of a special meeting, in open session, on Monday, Tuesday, orWednesday of next week for the purpose of discussing selection of a member to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Bill Geiger from the Board. Both the Board President and the Board Secretary have acknowledged that this is an appropriate request under the Policy. We await the scheduling of that meeting.
“We believe that time is of the essence, if we are to fulfill our responsibility to select a Board member before 45 days have run from the date of Bill Geiger’s resignation (July 10). Once it has been scheduled, public notice of the meeting will be provided in accordance with all legal requirements.”
