With the pandemic and snow prompting a completely virtual ceremony, the new Alexandria School Board was sworn into office on Tuesday (Jan. 4).
Board Chair Meagan Alderton was also unanimously reelected by her colleagues to serve as leader for another year, and Member Jacinta Greene was named vice chair.
“I am looking forward to another fun ride with you all this coming year,” Alderton told the new Board. “I really appreciate the support, and I definitely will always hope to never let you guys down.”
After a tough term overshadowed by COVID-19, only three members sought reelection in November — Alderton (District C), Greene and Michelle Rief (both in District A).
“Thank you for your everyone for your vote of confidence in me in this role, and I will to the best of my ability wholeheartedly serve you as vice chair,” Greene told her colleagues.
Also in District A, former City Councilman Willie F. Bailey took the oath. In District B, Ashley Simpson Baird, Tammy S. Ignacio and former School Board Member Kelly Carmichael Booz were sworn in, as were Abdel-Rahman Elnoubi and Christopher Harris representing District C.
The School Board’s next meeting is on Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
Last night our colleagues on the @ACPSk12 School Board took their oaths of office for the next 3 years.
The partnership between City Council and our School Board is critical as we work to ensure the success of every child.
Congrats to our new Board!
