Roberts resigns after 22 years on Batavia school board

BATAVIA – Batavia School District 101 is accepting applications to fill a vacancy on the school board after the resignation of Kathleen Roberts.

Roberts, who has been on the board for 22 years, said she resigned because of family matters.

“I have a lot of family stuff going on,” Roberts said Thursday. “I need to free up some time and mental real estate.”

Board members will vote June 25 on filling the vacancy. The person will fill the spot until the election April 7, 2015.

“I have no one in mind for the vacancy,” Roberts said. “I think with the newly elected board members, the district is in good hands.”

Applicants for the vacancy should submit a letter of interest and a brief resume by 4 p.m. June 7 to board Secretary Lisa Hichens via email at superintendent@bps101.net or hand-delivered to the Rosalie Jones Administration Center, 335 W. Wilson St., Batavia.

Applicants need to be at least 18, a U.S. citizen and a registered voter who lives within the school district’s boundaries.

Earlier this month, three District 101 board members left the board as three new members took their seats. Incumbent Tina Bleakley, who was appointed last year to the board, retained her seat in April’s election.

Taking their seats were new board members Jason Stoops, Susan Locke and Jonathan Gaspar.

Board members Ron Link, Jack Hinterlong and Joseph Purpura did not run for re-election.
