Tera Lee will remain Farmington School Board chair

Farmington School Board leadership will remain the same for 2012.

Board members elected Tera Lee chair for the year Monday at their first meeting of 2012. Lee, beginning her second year on the board, also served as chair in 2011.

Brian Treakle, also starting his second year on the board, turned down a nomination for the chair's position. He was unanimously elected vice-chair.

Melissa Sauser was elected the board's clerk on a 4-2 vote over Julie Singewald.

Julie McKnight, the longest-tenured member of the board, will serve as treasurer in 2012. She was elected unanimously after Singewald declined a nomination.

School board members also set their salaries for the coming year. Their compensation will remain the same as it was in 2011. Board members will receive $3,600 for the year and Lee will receive $4,200 as board chair. Board members also receive $30 for each meeting they attend.
