At the Special Meeting of the Board of Education on Thursday, August 12, 2021, the Board appointed Rocky Capobianco to fill the provisional vacancy. A vacancy opened up for the Board of Education in Trustee Area Two (2) when former Trustee Jenny Fitzgerald submitted her resignation, effective June 30, 2021.
