Board of education fills vacant position

The Jamesville-DeWitt Central School District Board of Education voted to fill a vacant position during its regular meeting on Monday, January 29. 

Dana Corcoran will replace Lisa McKenney, who resigned in December due to a work-related conflict of interest.

This isn’t Corcoran’s first time serving the district. She was elected to the board in May 2017 and served until Oct. 2018 when she resigned due to a conflict of interest. She was tapped to fill a vacant seat on the board in Dec. 2018 and served through June 2019. She also served on J-D’s 2021-22 District Equity Council.

Corcoran will serve through the board of education election in May. Her seat will be up for election this May. 

The board includes nine school district residents elected by voters. Each board member is elected to a three-year term. Board members are not financially compensated.

Petitions are available for anyone interested in running in the upcoming election. More information can be found here.
