School board members will be selecting a new president later this month.

Current Springfield District 186 board president Chuck Flamini says he is letting his term expire but will remain on the board for the foreseeable future.  He does wish the next president the best of luck.

“May he or she, God rest their souls….I shouldn’t say that” Flamini told the board Monday night.

Flamini says he feels a new board president should be seated before the school year ends to help navigate throught some of the difficult waters the district faces.
