AUGUST: Trotwood names Bozeman to fill school board seat
District residents who are interested in applying for Heard’s seat are asked to contact Trotwood-Madison Treasurer Janice Allen at 854-3050, ext. 1137, to get an application. The application and a resume must be returned to Allen by Jan. 22.
A district news release this week said the rest of the five-member school board will review all applications and name the replacement within 30 days of Heard’s departure. In January when the decision is made, the other four board members will be Denise Moore, who was re-elected last month, Vanessa Jeter-Freeman, who is in the middle of a four-year term, and Bozeman and Norman Scearce, who were newly elected in November.
Barring takeover by a Distress Commission, the school board member appointed to Heard’s seat will serve through December 31, 2019, with the next school board election scheduled for November 2019.
