“She had a lot of experience in board work and board/teacher relations and most of all in finance,” Miller said. “She was a very good member.”
The district has three options for announcing an opening on the board – publication, speaking about it at a public meeting, and placing a notice on the district's website. MVTHS has chosen the last two options for Alvis' position, rather than publicizing the opening in the media, said Superintendent Michael Smith.
The board may still use the publication option in the future, however, depending on how many letters of interest are received.
Ideally, officials would like to name Alvis' replacement by the next full board meeting July 15, but that is a “tight timeline,” Smith said.
“I think we'll make every effort to do that,” Smith said.
A follow-up special meeting of the MVTHS Board has not yet been scheduled.
