In an emailed response to Community Impact Newspaper, newly elected trustee Robert Scarfo said he wanted to thank voters who chose to support him and allow him to represent them on the school board.


“As I did in my prior board service, I take this very seriously, as do the other trustees," Scarfo said. "In addition to addressing with the board the many issues the district faces in the next few years, I want to champion for our special ed students, expand after high school career path options and work to maximize our limited financial resources.”
