Starting this month, the governing boards of the Kyrene Elementary and Tempe Union school districts will reflect a few position changes due to the elections held last November. Returning to the Kyrene board for her second, four-year term is Bernadette Coggins; newly elected to the board is Kristen Middleton. Current Kyrene Governing Board member Beth Brizel chose not to run for re-election. The returning Kyrene governing board members include Ross Robb, John King and Michelle Hirsch, whose terms end in 2016. In the Tempe Union district, DeeAnne McClenahan and Brandon Schmoll won seats on the board, and their four-year terms of service began this month. Schmoll currently serves as the constable for the Kyrene Justice Precinct and will continue in that post. McClenahan previously served on the Tempe Union Governing Board from 2008-2012, and chose not to run for re-election when her first term expired. Her two daughters graduated from Corona del Sol High School. Her career experience is in real estate and facilities management. McClenahan and Schmoll join current Tempe Union Governing Board members Moses Sanchez, Michelle Helm, and Sandy Lowe, whose terms end in 2016. David Schapira was elected to his first term on the Tempe Union Governing Board in 2010. He chose not to run for re-election, and instead ran and won a seat on the Tempe City Council. Current Tempe Union Governing Board President, Mary Lou Taylor also chose not to run for re-election, after serving three terms since first her first election in 2002. On both the Kyrene and the Tempe Union governing boards, members are publicly elected to a four-year term of service in the General Election every two years. The position is unpaid, and terms are staggered so that all five seats are not up for election at one time. Governing board members serve as non-partisan elected officials. While members must live in their districts one year prior to service, they do not have term limits. The governing board officer positions of president and vicepresident are selected by their respective governing board members each January. Members may hold officer positions more than once during their term. The governing board members are primarily responsible for reviewing and approving the school district’s annual budget, hiring and evaluating the district superintendent, and reviewing and adopting policies that govern the operations of the school district.
