Roy planning to step down as Milton School Board president
MILTON Rob Roy told The Gazette on Tuesday that heís stepping down as Milton School Board President.
Roy has been absent from a handful of board meetings since late last year. He said heís recovering from health problems, which include a compression fracture in his back.
ďIím not as mobile, and donít have energy,Ē he said, adding he needs more time to focus on his health and recovery.
In April, Roy was re-elected to another three-year term on the board. He said he will serve out that term, but not as president. He said the board will nominate and vote on a new president at its reorganization meeting May 13.
Roy, a Milton resident, has been board president for more than five years. During that time, he has seen tenures of two superintendents and was at the helm last fall when Superintendent Mike Garrow resigned after a board-led investigation into his conduct.
Roy also has overseen the implementation of Gov. Scott Walkerís Act 10 provisions in the district, including a host of district funding cuts, changes to employee benefits and the boardís crafting of a new employee handbook.
