Thank you for clearing that up, Chelsea.

As one of those newly elected BOE members, I, too, would like to clear up that misconception. I will not be receiving an outrageous salary. In fact no member of the BOE will receive ANY salary compensation for our service. We are community volunteers, serving our school district, with no form of compensation, salary, or benefits. It is really pretty shameful how someone could post such an uninformed comment. I hope this serves as a learning lesson...if you post a comment, at least know the facts before you press the Submit button. Sincerely, Kathleen Gentile, non-salaried, but proud, community volunteer
