Essex school board chair resigns, replacement sought

Essex School Board Chair Kim Gleason has resigned, attendees at the Essex-Westford School District meeting learned last night.

Gleason and her husband had sold their Essex home and have been living in Grand Isle County. A majority of the board had requested her resignation. Gleason, who is also a member of the State Board of Education, has been a strong supporter of flying the BLM flag and of the schools’ Critical Race Theory-based ‘equity’ instruction.

The school district will select a replacement to serve until the next annual School Meeting in April. Interested Essex-Westford residents may send a letter of intent to Erin Kennedy Knox at ekennedyknox@board.ewsd.org by Oct. 26.
