This evening's Fort Dodge Community School Board Meeting will be the first since the elections that took place last week. After approving consent agenda items, the board will welcome new member Lisa Shimkat and re-elected members Stuart Cochrane and Brian Forsythe. Prior to the three being sworn in, the board will recognize retiring member Jan Merz, who served on the school board for more than 20 years. After the swearing-ins, a board president and vice president will be nominated. Other agenda items include a district update from Superintendent Doug Van Zyl and approving a school board meeting schedule for the year.
