SAN ANGELO – The San Angelo Independent School District Board of Trustees is set to appoint a board member at large to replace longtime trustee Lanny Layman who has announced his retirement.
As we reported earlier, Lanny Layman announced in May of 2021 he was stepping down but he would remain on the board through the end of his term. He was re-elected in 2019 for a term also expiring in the spring of 2023.
According to the agenda for the Monday evening meeting, the school board will consider an appointment to the at-large school board trustee position Layman holds.
According to the agenda, Any vacancy or vacancies occurring on the Board, whether by death, resignation, forfeiture, lack of qualifications, or removal, shall be filled with citizens having the same qualifications as candidates for election. If a vacancy occurs on the Board, the remaining members of the Board may fill the vacancy by appointment until the next regular Board election or may order a special election to fill the vacancy for the unexpired term. If more than one year remains in the term of the position vacated, the vacancy shall be filled not later than the 180th day after the vacancy occurs.
There is no word on whom the board will appoint to fill the position.
The San Angelo ISD Board of Trustees meets at 5:45 p.m. Monday in the administration building on University Ave. That meeting is open to the public.
