Three High Point Regional High School Board of Education members resigned from their positions on Tuesday, March 19. According to the New Jersey Herald, Board President Kyle Vealey and Vice President Todd Miller resigned behind closed doors before the BOE meeting and Karen Kymer resigned immediately after the meeting.
While it is not clear what caused them to resign, Vealey told the New Jersey Herald that "the resignations of three people should send a message to the public that something very wrong was going on."
In light of the vacancies William Kehoe and Gayle Tidona were chosen to serve as president and vice president, respectively. The board has 65 days to temporarily fill the vacancies through the end of the year.
The BOE has been under scrutiny lately after board member Deborah Anderson's reportedly admitted that she broke state ethics rules when she voted on superintendent pay raises while her daughter was employed in the district.
