The McPherson school board will hold its first meeting of the 2015-2016 school year this evening at 7 p.m.

It will also be the first for new board members Anne Hassler Heidel and Alan Burghart, who were elected this past April, and new USD 418 Superintendent Mark Crawford. It will also be the first meeting since the resignation of former Associate Superintendent Chris Ruder amidst allegations of misuse of funds.

The board will handle the typical start of year organizational matters, such as electing the president and vice president for the coming year.

Also, the USD 418 school board will look at end-of-the-year transfers and discuss reorganization of the central office.

This evening's meeting of the McPherson board of education begins at 7 p.m at the central offices on Main Street.
