Mclouth The McLouth school board appointed a new board member during this week's meeting, said Supt. Robert Behrens.
Tim Mitts was appointed to serve on the board, replacing longtime board member Carolyn Lasher, who resigned in December.
In another matter, the board decided to hold summer school this year. The program, started last summer, offers a three-week session of morning classes for students in kindergarten through eighth grade, Behrens said.
