Signatures were handed in against Pocatello/Chubbuck School Board Trustees Jackie Cranor, Janie Gebhardt and Dave Mattson. Petitioners need 164 against Cranor, 206 against Mattson and 351 against Gebhardt. Petitioners claim that they handed in enough signatures with a 20-25% cushion.
The recall is over the board's decision to continue a hybrid learning model in order to ward off the coronavirus pandemic. The parents wanted full-in school model. There is also complaints about a boundary issue and a decision to retire a Native American mascot.
The recall can't get to the ballot before May 2021.
