Benjamin Logan Board of Education members accepted at a special meeting Tuesday evening the resignation of Board President Tod Johnson due to the recent sale of his home and his upcoming move out of the school district, school officials report.
Vice President Deb Johnson was appointed as president, and Karen Dill elected board vice president.
Those district residents interested in being considered for filling the board seat vacancy should submit an e-mail of interest to Superintendent John Scheu by Wednesday, March 10, at [email protected]
“Tod submitted his resignation yesterday, as he has sold his house in the BL School District and is moving out of the district,” Scheu said during the meeting. “One of the requirements of a school board member is to reside in the district they serve.
“This is a huge loss for the school district, as Tod Johnson has stepped up into a leadership position in the school district at a time when many issues were being dealt with.”
Also during the special meeting, the board adjourned to executive session for purpose of preparation for classified negotiations and considering employment of an employee.
The next regular meeting is 6 p.m. Monday, March 15, in the central office conference room.
