Newly elected and re-elected school board members were sworn in at the Dec. 11, 2018, Apache Junction Unified School District Governing Board meeting.
On November 6, after a heated campaign, voters endorsed current board vice-president Deena Kimble in her bid to continue her service on the board. Local business owner Chelsea Connolly took the seat vacated by board member Mike Weaver last September. Connolly will assume office on Jan. 1, 2019.
The first AJUSD Governing Board meeting of the new year will be January 8, 6 p.m., at the AJUSD District Office, 1575 W. Southern Ave., Apache Junction.
