So far, 6 seek position on school board

Print Article

BELOIT - With the School District of Beloit Board of Education short three members, six individuals have applied so far to fill the vacancies.

The six include former school board members Jeffrey W. Klett and NoraGard, along with Kathy Crawford, John C. Wong, Megan Miller and Torie L. Champeny.

Citizens have until 3 p.m. Monday to submit applications for the positions.

The remaining school board members - Kyle Larsen, David Wilson, Pam Charles and Wendy Sanchez - could begin interviewing candidates for appointment as early as Monday evening and continue through Wednesday of next week, Larsen told the Beloit Daily News.

Although the district must find three new members and has been hamstrung over legal quorum issues, the board has not scheduled a full board special meeting.

On July 3 President Laurie Endres, Vice President Kris Klobucar and Treasurer Shelly Cronin resigned after the other board members voted to remove Endres from her post as president. The board has not met since that July 3 session when the members resigned.

The board had a meeting scheduled for July 7 to interview interim superintendent candidates and discuss other board business but it was canceled due to a lack of a quorum. Board member David Wilson was on vacation only leaving three board members who could have attended. A subsequent special meeting for the full board has not been rescheduled as of press time.

There is a infrastructure committee meeting scheduled for 5 p.m. today at Kolak Education Center.

Persons interested in applying for the vacant board positions can pick up application materials at Kolak Education Center. All applications are due back to Board Secretary Michelle Shope by 3 p.m. Monday.

People can also download the applications that are online on the district website under the "Board of Education" section located under the "Our District" tab at BeloitSchools.net.
