The Billings School District 2 board will meet at 6:30 p.m. Monday to elect a new chair following Chairwoman Barbara Bryan's resignation from office on Tuesday.
Bryan's resignation doesn't become official until Friday. Under state law, elected officials who step down from office have 72 hours to withdraw their resignation, which for Bryan falls on Friday.
Trustees at the meeting on Monday will declare Bryan's seat vacant, call for applicants to fill her spot and then vote for a new chairwoman or chairman.
Kathy Aragon, the board's vice chairwoman, called for transparency and collaboration as trustees meet to elect their next leader.
"I would like to move forward very openly and transparently and with full board participation," she said in a statement Wednesday. "I think it is critical that we have full participation of the board at the meeting to elect a new chair."
