The Mansfield ISD school board will meet Thursday to consider the resignation of board president Courtney Lackey-Wilson, and weigh whether to appoint a trustee to fill the two years remaining on her three-year term.
Lackey-Wilson, who has served in the Place 7 seat since 2011, declined to comment until after the 3 p.m. called meeting Thursday.
Lackey-Wilson was re-elected to her fourth three-year term in a run-off in November, and then elected president of the board. She has also served as secretary and vice president of the school board.
If the school board accepts, Lackey-Wilson's resignation, they could decide to appoint someone to fill her seat for the two years remaining on her term, appoint someone to fill the place until a special election is held or appoint someone to fill the spot until the May 2022 election.
