Ben Kuhn is the new President of the Shelby Eastern Schools board.
Jason Yantiss, who was the sitting president at the end of 2021, nominated Kuhn, who was serving as Vice-President.
Brandon Kleine takes over as Vice-President and Andrew Hawk will serve as Secretary.
Taylor Hunter was retained as the board’s legal counsel, according to superintendent Todd Hitchcock.
At Wednesday’s first meeting of 2022, the board updated the school system’s COVID-19 policy.
The most recent Centers for Disease Control now recommends a five-day quarantine period for a positive COVID-19 test.
The close contact policy remains the same, according to Hitchcock. If a close contact has been determined, the student can wear a mask and stay in school or opt for a 10-day quarantine period.
