Willow Run school board postpones action on former superintendent Doris Hope-Jackson
The Willow Run school board postponed action tonight on issues related to former Superintendent Doris Hope-Jackson until a special meeting to be held March 25.
The board voted to table four agenda items tonight related to the situation with Hope-Jackson—including the approval of attorney services—until the special meeting.
“I’m not going to go into detail because it’s a personnel issue,” board President Sheri Washington said after the vote. “We’ve well maintained the integrity of that entire process and want to continue that up to the board action on those agenda items.”
Washington said the board will then provide “a much, much better look at what we’re doing here in the district.”
Next Thursday’s meeting will be at 6.30 p.m.Â at Willow Run High School.
The board attorney’s inability to attend tonight's meeting influenced the decision to postpone action.
“We as a board did not feel we should rush through something, not having everything they need for tonight,"Â Washington said.Â “There’s no mystery, there’s nothing going on. But because of the sensitivity and the nature of what we’re doing, our board has agreed everything must be aligned.”
Washington said the “same thing” applied for director of student and teacher services Laconda Hicks, whose status also has been unclear.
