Batavia School Board to meet to fill vacancy on board

Published: Thursday, June 13, 2013 5:30 a.m. CST

BATAVIA – The Batavia School District 101 board will hold a special meeting Monday to discuss filling a vacancy on the school board after the resignation of Kathleen Roberts.

The meeting will be at 3:30 p.m. at the Rosalie Jones Administration Center, 335 W. Wilson St., Batavia. Roberts, who had been on the board for 22 years, resigned in May because of family matters.

District 101 has been taking applications from those seeking to fill the vacancy. The person will fill the spot until the April 7, 2015, election.

In May, 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.
