Elected by voters Feb. 4, new school board members Thelma Hahn, from White Rock District 1, and Melanie McKinley from White Rock District 2, were sworn in during the state school board meeting in Santa Fe Friday.
“We’ve been at the state board meeting all day and heard that all the districts are receiving shortened budgets and I wonder how that’s going to affect out school, programs and teachers,” Hahn said. “It’s going to call for some belt-tightening.”
Hahn was joined at the state school board meeting by LAPS Mary McLeod and veteran school board members Ken Johnson, Jody Benson, Joan Ahlers and new board member Melanie McKinley.
“During the annual meeting, school board members from all 89 school districts met to talk about legislative issues and met with legislators,” she said.
Identifying a new superintendent tops Hahn’s list of priorities, she said. “Another thing since the bond issue has passed is to make sure that it gets going correctly and I would like to see knowledgeable people make sure the money is used wisely and implemented in a timely manner.”
