Three New Trustees Sworn In; Sinking Fund Millage Increase Proposed

Arbor Public Schools Board of Education organizational meeting (January 18, 2017): Forsythe Middle School, 1655 Newport Rd

The Ann Arbor Public Schools (AAPS) Board of Education (BOE) trustees will meet in executive session at 5:30 PM this evening, citing attorney/client privilege. Executive sessions are closed to the public.

The organizational meeting, starting at 7:00 PM, will be the first of the year with a new board. Three new trustees will join the board at this meeting: Jeff Gaynor, Harmony Mitchell, and Jessica Kelly. Gaynor and Mitchell were elected on November 8; Kelly was selected by the previous Board on December 16 to fill a seat vacated by Donna Lasinski.

After the new trustees are sworn in, an election will be held for Board officers, and the Parliamentarian will be appointed. Committee assignments will be determined, and the 2017 meeting schedule will be approved.

Two first briefings are scheduled. Jill Minnick, Chief Financial Officer, will cover the liability insurance renewal. A sinking fund millage proposal will also be made.

Board action will taken to accept the Board of Canvassers report of the November 8, 2106 election.
