An Argyle ISD school board member resigned Monday, the first day back to classes for students in the district.
According to an Argyle ISD post on Twitter, Greg Aune stepped down because he and his family are moving out of the school district into Lantana.
Aune has served on the board since 2013. The AISD school board has seven members who each serve three-year terms.
“When elected, my ultimate goal was to protect our tradition of academic excellence and responsibly manage the fast growth projections. I am proud to say we have accomplished many goals to the benefit of students and taxpayers.”
His resignation is effective immediately.
“Greg Aune has been a tireless advocate for the students and teachers of Argyle ISD,” said board president Brian Ratcliff on the same post. “Among his many accomplishments, Greg was a key member of the facilities committee that spearheaded the improvements to the high school and the development of a new middle school campus.”
According to AISD policy, in the event of a vacancy the remaining board has a couple options for filling the seat:
- fill the vacancy by appointment until the next board member election; or
- call a special election to fill the vacancy.
It more than one year is left on the term vacated, that spot must be filled no later than the 180th day after the date of vacancy.
