One seat in the Edgecombe County Board of Education boardrooms will be empty at the 6:30 p.m. Monday business meeting. That seat is the one that recently was vacated by Faye Taylor.
Taylor submitted her resignation at the Dec. 9 board meeting and her resignation was effective Dec. 31. Taylor represented Edgecombe County Public Schools District 7, which includes Bulluck Elementary, West Edgecombe Middle and SouthWest Edgecombe High.
The board will discuss and approve the process to fill that vacancy at the business meeting.
According to board policy on resignations and vacancies, all vacancies will be filled by appointment by the remaining members of the board, and the person appointed to fill the vacancy must reside in the district where the vacancy occurs. The board will advertise the vacancy and interested applicants are asked to submit a statement of interest and documentation of residency.
