Past member back on Claymont school board
DENNISON (WJER) (Jan. 10, 2022) – A familiar face is returning to the Claymont Board of Education. Aaron Cottrell is taking over the seat vacated by Kenny Trimmer, who stepped down last month for personal reasons. Superintendent Brian Rentsch says he had the most experience of the five candidates the board interviewed for the position, having served as a member for four years, from 2014 to 2017.
Members tapped Cottrell during their organizational meeting last week, also selecting Steve Miles as president for 2022 and Lois Grandison as vice-president.
The administration has asked the board to decide whether to use COVID-19 money to expand either the elementary or high school and close one of the others. Rentsch says members will likely wait until February to call a vote, so Cottrell has time to review the proposals.
