The Prince William County School Board is moving forward with plans to replace one of its members who resigned suddenly last week.
School Board Chairman Milton C. Johns said in an interview that the board would look to have a replacement for Grant Lattin, who represented the Occoquan district, in time for the board’s first meeting in October. The board must first formally accept Lattin’s resignation at its meeting next month and will ask for community members who might want to fill the role to step forward in the coming weeks.
The search process will be conducted in the open, and a confirmation will be subject to the vote of the full School Board, Johns said.
“I will be looking for someone who can convince me that they want to be on the board because they’re prepared to serve and not because they have an axe to grind or want to use it as a stepping stone,” Johns said.
