"I want to thank them for their service on the board of education," said district Superintendent Joseph Kovalchik. "It takes a unique person to serve on a board of education in this world. It's the purest form of government because they don't get paid."
He noted that several board members have 10-plus years of service, including board President David Gogel, board Vice President Jane Erdo and board member Jean Rundle.
