LL-H board member resigns
LAKE LINDEN — Lake Linden-Hubbell Public Schools’ Board of Education is looking for a new member.
The board accepted Trustee Stacey Sedar’s resignation at Monday’s meeting. Sedar has been on the board for several years. In her resignation letter, Sedar said the decision was strictly for personal and professional reasons. She hopes to continue working with the district in other ways.
“This has been a very difficult decision for me, as I am a very strong supporter of the Lake Linden-Hubbell School District and very proud Lakes alum and fan,” she wrote. “I have enjoyed my time on the board. It has been a very fulfilling experience.”
The vacancy must be filled within 30 days, Superintendent Brad Codere said. People have until noon Oct. 22 to apply to the district.
In other action, the board:
• heard public comment from Melissa Corrigan, a Lake Linden-Hubbell parent, employee and member of the district’s school improvement and MTSS (Multi-Tiered Systems of Support) teams. Corrigan thanked the board for considering options, listening to opinions and making decisions it feels are in the best interest of students and families.
“I have not and likely will not agree with all decisions made,” she said in a statement provided to the board. “I do feel It is important to appropriately express my opinions, question the world around me and stand up for my beliefs. I also feel it is equally important to teach and model compassion, tolerance, resilience and loyalty.”
