Signatures have been handed in for the recall against Idaho Falls School Board Chairwoman Lara Hill and Trustee Elizabeth Cogliati. Petitioners need 481 valid signatures for Hill and 280 for Cogliati. They have reportedly handed in more than that. There was also an attempt against Trustee Hillary Radcliffe, but because she was appointed to the position, the signature total needed was over 1400, so it seems to have failed.
The issue is the hybrid alternate day schedule the board adopted by a 3-2 vote in order to combat the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. The vote followed widespread social distancing guidelines.
One of the leaders of the recall effort was State Representative Bryan Zollinger (R), who apparently wanted students in school four days a week. Zollinger had supported Hill in her campaign.
