The Shaler Area School District school board reorganized for the new year with four new school board members, one of the largest turnovers in recent years.

Suzanna Donahue, Tim Gapsky, April Kwiatkowski and Steve Romac took the oath of office and joined the nine-member school board at its reorganization meeting on Dec. 4.

Donahue has been on the board since June to fill former Vice President Domenic Donovan's unexpired term after his resignation.

All four new school board members won in their respective regions in November's general election for four-year terms.

The newly sworn in board members and holdover board members took their first action to appoint Jeanne Petrovich as school board president.

“I'm truly honored to serve as your president,” Petrovich said. “I appreciate your vote of confidence.”

The board approved John Fries to serve as school board vice president.

The school board also approved the 2014 school board meeting schedule.

Committee of the Whole sessions will take place on the second Wednesday of the month at 7:30 p.m. Voting meetings will take place on the third Wednesday of the month at 7:30 p.m. Potential work sessions or voting meetings will be held on the first, fourth and fifth Wednesdays at 6 p.m., when applicable. Combined Committee of the Whole and voting meetings will be held in January, July, November and December.

A full schedule is available online at www.sasd.k12.pa.us.
