On Tuesday, January 31st, the FCCPS School Board voted to appoint Jerrod Anderson to fill the position vacated by Phil Reitinger. He will serve in this capacity for the remainder of the calendar year.
Dr. Anderson brings many attributes to the Board, including his professional background as a federal health statistician, his service on the School Board's Special Education Advisory
Committee, his experience volunteering in many roles with the schools, and his continued engagement with school board meetings and matters.
The other eligible applicants were Ms. Bethany Rubin Henderson and Ms. Amie S. Murphy. The School Board was impressed with all three candidates' educational achievements, professional experience, and community involvement.
The School Board followed the process of soliciting cover letters, resumes, and public comments over the last six weeks. During an executive closed session on Tuesday night, the School Board members discussed the merits of each applicant, with the final vote occurring publicly.
The FCCPS School Board encourages all applicants and interested community members to run for School Board elections this Fall, when three seats with four-year terms will be selected by public voting.
