The Springfield School Board has postponed its scheduled election of new officers.
The board was expected to choose a new board president to succeed Chuck Flamini, who opted not to seek another one-year term as President. But the vote was delayed because only four of the seven board members were present. While that is enough for a quorum, the members on hand say it's preferable to have the full board present to choose its leadership for the next year.
The board will vote at its first meeting in May on a new president and vice-president, as well as the adoption of board policies for the coming year.
