SCRANTON SCHOOL BOARD STATEMENT

ON REORGANIZATION

The Scranton School Board of Education held its annual reorganization meeting last evening. Board

Secretary Virginia Orr called the meeting to order and presented plaques to President Barb Dixon

and Vice-President Robert Casey in recognition of their service in 2018.

Both Director Casey and Director Cognetti were nominated to serve as Temporary Chair. Mr. Casey

was appointed and called for a motion to nominate candidates for President. Five names were put

forward with Mrs. Dixon becoming the successful candidate. President Dixon then called for a

motion to nominate candidates for Vice-President. Two candidates were named and Mr. Casey was

appointed to another term.

Although the vote was contentious, the Board is committed to continuing its work together. Efforts

to increase efficiencies, improve transparency and secure adequate funding for our District while

maintaining the highest educational standards are goals on which The Board of Education,

Superintendent and all stakeholders must remain united.
