With no seats up for grabs in the November 2012 election, the Centennial School Board that entered Monday night's reorganization meeting left the building looking exactly the same.
An 8-0-1 vote (Mark Miller abstained) re-elected Dr. Andrew Pollock to his fourth consecutive one-year term as the school board president, and 6-3 vote maintained Betty Huf as vice president, defeating fellow nominee David Shafter. A vote for Kati Driban as assistant secretary was replaced with no objections by a statement of acclamation by Dr. Pollock renaming her to the position.
Pollock hopes the unaltered make-up of the school board officers signifies their goal for a steady 2013, following several years of changes such as the construction of the new high school and the consolidation of the elementary schools.
"Stability is the keyword for next year," said Pollock. "The new McDonald is on schedule for the spring. We now have to keep our eye on the financial picture, especially since we still don't know what the state has planned for the pensions issue."
The school board will hold its final full meeting of the year on Tuesday, December 11 at 7 p.m.
