Welcome to DCSD’s newest Board of Education directors
CASTLE ROCK – On Monday, November 30, Douglas County School District’s newest Board of Education members were formally sworn in.
During a ceremony in the Boardroom, Douglas County Magistrate Beth Elliot-Dumler presided as Anne-Marie Lemieux, David Ray, and Wendy Vogel took the oath of office.
The next day, December 1, the full Board met for their first meeting. The first order of business was electing leadership. Director Meghann Silverthorn, who represents District G, was chosen as President on a 4-3 vote. Judith Reynolds, who represents District D, was chosen as Vice President on a 4-3 vote. Both votes were conducted by secret ballot.
Immediately former Board Vice President Doug Benevento transferred the gavel to Silverthorn, who conducted the remainder of the meeting, which included a lively discussion about a proposed change to Board Policy: BEDH: Public Participation at Board Meetings.
The proposal and possible amendments are expected to be on the December 15 Board meeting agenda.
