The Lockland Board of Education is currently accepting applications to fill a vacant seat due to the resignation of Misty Cromer, effective on February 22, 2018. The new position will be a 22-month unexpired term that will begin immediately upon appointment and will run until December 31, 2019.
Ohio Revised Codes and our Board policy states: Any vacancy will be filled by the Board at its next regular or special meeting not earlier than 10 days, nor later than 30 days after the vacancy occurs.
The Board is seeking interested applicants to interview. The Board will then decide on the replacement.
The Board made a decision at their meeting on Thursday, February 8, 2018 to start the application process to fill the vacancy. They will begin accepting applications immediately until Wednesday, February 28 at 4:00 p.m.
Interviews will be held during executive session at the Board of Education’s regular meeting scheduled for Thursday March 8, 2018. Once an application is submitted, the applicant will be contacted by the Board to set up an interview time. Because of the time constraints imposed by the law, the Board will conduct interviews and make a decision on the candidates at the March 8, 2018 meeting.
If a majority decision isn’t agreed upon by the board, within 30 days of the vacancy, the power to fill the vacant Board seat is given to the Hamilton County Probate Court.
