Blackfoot School Board Chairman R. Scott Reese has resigned in the face of a proposed recall (which was strangely hinted at here). Apparently, the big issue was a six-figure separation agreement (which was later ruled inappropriate by the court due to its passage in an executive session) with the former Superintendent. Reese has been hired by the county for an undisclosed job.
There is still an attempted recall of board member Jenny Hong. No word on what will happen there.
Last year, a separate Blackfoot School Board member survived a recall vote.
