Dave Zuro and Steve DiMauro will continue to serve as president and vice president respectively of the school board after a unanimous vote at the board's Jan. 6 meeting. This will be Zuro's 10th year serving as board president; he was elected to his third term on the school board in November 2017.

"I would like to thank each and everyone for your support," Zuro said to the school board. "In the final analysis, we are five board members bringing our respective views to the table. I appreciate the views you bring to the table. What makes me proud to be on this board is every single member, without exception, has put the children of the district first."
DiMauro said that he felt "we are very fortunate to have such a good board."
"While we don’t alway agree, we are here to serve in the best interest of the students," DiMauro said.
