PARMA, Ohio– Parma City School Board president Lynn Halloran resigned Thursday evening. No reason was given.
This is the second Parma City School Board president to resign in just a matter of weeks.
Earlier this month, Kathleen Petro resigned during a packed meeting concerning the proposed budget plan.
Now, the board is once again searching for a new president as they present a new plan to try and battle their budget deficit. The original plan called for three Parma city schools to be combined into one.
The idea was met with a lot of outcry.
Thursday night, the school board passed a new plan that will allow those schools to remain separate. The state gave the Parma City School District until November 1 to come up with a fiscal recovery plan to deal with its $15-million debt.
The state placed the district in fiscal caution back in August.
