JC School Board set to launch new year, approve calendar
Sunday, April 8, 2012
Once a year, school boards hold two meetings in one night — and that night is Monday for Jefferson City’s Board of Education.
With only two candidates filed for two seats on the non-partisan, seven-member Jefferson City school board, there was no district election last week. But state law still considers those candidates to have been “elected,” so Jefferson City Board President Alan Mudd and Vice President Joy Sweeney will be sworn in to new, three-year terms at the beginning of Monday night’s second meeting.
The “first” meeting of the night is the last official meeting of the “current” board, and it will begin with a public hearing on the calendar proposed for the school year that begins July 1.
