Patrick Hickey's vacant seat at the beginning of the Washington Local school board meeting at Washington Local administration building Jan. 3.
Washington Local Schools announced Friday that school board meetings in January, February, and March will be moved from the district administration building to the Conn-Weissenberger American Legion Post 587 at 2020 W. Alexis Rd.
The temporary move stems from new board member Patrick Hickey’s ban from district property, as well as a settlement he reached with district officials in 2015 after he resigned as superintendent while under investigation into claims of misconduct.
Board members earlier this month decided to temporarily move meetings so that Mr. Hickey, who was elected to the board in November, could attend.
