McCall to head School Board

-A A +A

Beth McCall, the newest member of the Marion County School Board, now serves as the board chair for the next year. Board members unanimously elected her to the post.
Electing a vice chair, however, proved to be more difficult. Board members tied when it came to whether Angie Boynton or Kelly King should sit in the number two spot. The vice-chair tie was prompted by Board Member Nancy Stacy’s absence from today’s annual reorganization meeting.
Board members tabled electing a vice chair until the next night’s board meeting. That’s when Stacy cast her vote for Angie Boynton.
Marion County voters elected McCall to the board last year. Her election as chair also marks her first-year anniversary as a School Board member. McCall represents district two, including 10 schools in Southeast Marion County. As chair, she will lead twice-monthly School Board meetings and year-round work sessions and serve on various leadership boards throughout the community.
Boynton was first elected to the School Board in 2010 and again in 2014. She represents district four, including seven schools and the Student Services department.
Other members of the Marion County School Board include Nancy Stacy (district one), Bobby James (district three), and Kelly King (district five).
By unanimous vote, board members also approved the same meeting schedule as in years past – holding board meetings on the second and fourth Tuesdays monthly at 5:30 p.m. at 512 SE Third St. in Ocala.
