Ada Board of Education welcomes two new members

By Paula Pyzik Scott

On January 8 the Board of Education of the Ada Exempted Village Schools (AEVS) held their annual reorganization meeting. 

Two new board members were sworn in, Troy Erikson and Justin Hollon. Ron Fleming was elected as board president and Ted Griffith was elected as vice president. The fifth member of the board is Matt Gossman.

Fleming and Erickson were also named to a policy committee. Meetings for this committee will be announced in advance.

The members agreed to continue meeting on the third Thursday of the month at 6:00 p.m. The regular January meeting will be held at noon on Saturday, January 20. 

As discussed at meetings in late 2023, the school is now required to provide a second preschool classroom, which has been used for storage.


Interim superintendent Dennis Recker urged the board members to be ready to direct how the schools will assess and address this issue. He noted that AEVS would not be eligible for state funding and that there is a limit on home much can be spent on the project.

The board entered an executive session at 7:50 p.m. with no action to be taken.
