Rose Seck and Tait Carter took the oath of office when the Carrollton Exempted Village School District re-organized Jan. 9 for the new year.

Seck was re-elected to her position and Carter was elected as a new member during the November 2017 election.

Seck was chosen as president and Helen Skinner was named vice president.

Meetings will continue to be held on the second Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. Exceptions were noted for June 29 and November 6.

A new District Transition committee was formed consisting of Pozderac and Skinner. Administrators and teachers will also be members of the committee.

“This will be an intense committee for about 18 months. It will sort of fade out and then be back in about 18 months when building of the elementary school will begin,” said Director of Programs Ed Robinson.

Superintendent Dave Quattrochi said that now is the time for the committee to start asking questions and working to find answers.
