A group of residents circulated petitions back in October and garnered enough signatures to recall three school board members. However, Board Clerk, Cathy Goodness disqualified more than 300 signatures on each petition and the state board says she did not inform the citizens of her challenge until it was too late for them to act.
Goodness, Roy Taylor and Jerry Nash are named in the recall petition. The recall committee says they won't allow residents to speak at meetings without eight days' notice and they also point to the loss of 45 teachers in three years.
The three members on the petition have until January 18 to appeal to the Wood County Circuit Court, otherwise, a recall election is scheduled for January 27.
