South Bend School Board Members disagree on how to fill empty seat

Posted:
The South Bend School Board is looking to fill an empty seat, but there's debate about how to go about it. 

Board Member Bill Sniadecki is suggesting a change in the hiring policy.  He wants to establish a new committee.  It would be made up of community members and they would review candidates. 

Sniadecki thinks the plan could be put in place in time to replace Roger Parent, who recently resigned from the board.

Not everyone's on board with his plan though. School Board, President Michelle Engel does not want to change the current policy.  "I personally am not comfortable with the committee of 6 people, 10, whatever number choosing the next board member. I am comfortable with following state law and our policy," said Engel.

Sniadecki plans to bring this plan to the full board's attention at their next meeting on June 2nd.
