Announcement from the Andover School Board
The Andover School Board (ASB) is looking to fill a vacant seat
If you are interested in serving on the Andover School Board, please send an email to ASB Chair Aimee Menard (email@example.com). Please include Dr. Randy Wormald (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr. Mark MacLean (email@example.com) in that correspondence.

The next Andover School Board Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, June 7, 2023, beginning at 6:30pm at AEMS
At this meeting, under "New Business" on the public portion of the agenda, each individual that has expressed interest in the vacant seat has the opportunity to "interview" with the current members of the ASB (Aimee Menard - Chair, Kayla Chandler - Vice Chair, Stephen Chella, and Dan Newton)
The candidates will have a few moments to briefly introduce themselves to the ASB and succinctly speak to their reasons / motivations for stepping forward
Members of the ASB will have a few questions to ask
Each "interview" is slated for 5-minutes (we want to be respectful of time)
We will ask that candidates step out of the room during other interviews. This will ensure that the questions are fresh and the order of interviews does not provide any particular "advantage"
After all of the interviews, still in public session, the ASB will vote to appoint someone to the vacant seat
We'll make sure the new Board member hits the ground running!
The new candidate must be sworn in before they can vote on any action items - Katie Keyser (firstname.lastname@example.org) will coordinate this "swearing in"
The selected candidate will be on the ASB through the 2024 Andover School District Meeting (March 2024). Their first "official" ASB meeting will likely be Wednesday, August 2, 2023
This seat will be open once again in March of 2024
Prior to the 2024 Annual Meeting, if the candidate is interested in continuing with their service, they will have to file and run for the open seat
The ASB typically meets once a month on the first Tuesday of each month (except July)
Meetings start at 6:30 and are held at AEMS
The primary focus of the School Board is to hire / supervise the superintendent, set policy, monitor and approve monthly financials, collaborate with the Andover Budget Committee to bring a budget forward (to the voters at the Annual Meeting), and receive updates in regard to programming and progress at AEMS
There is occasionally some committee work that will encumber additional evenings
