The Portland Board of Public Education will hold a ceremony on Monday, Dec. 2, to inaugurate its newest members. The board also is expected to formally vote to approve Roberto Rodriguez to be Board chair again for the coming year.

To be sworn in at the 4 p.m. ceremony in the City Council Chambers at City Hall will be newly elected District 3 Board member Adam Burk and two Board members who were re-elected in the Nov. 5 election: at-large representatives Roberto Rodriguez and Anna Trevorrow. Burk replaces District 3 Board member Laurie Davis, who is stepping down after nine years of service on the Board.

Also sworn in will be five student representatives to the Board: Stephanie Brown, representing Portland High School; Fabio Caciel-Reyes, representing Casco Bay High School; Sahar Habibzai, representing Deering High School; Sam Parrott, representing the Portland Arts & Technology High School (PATHS); and Mangasa Magalie Yangala, representing Portland Adult Education.

Rodriguez has served as board chair since last December. At a caucus at its Nov. 26 meeting, the Board informally voted unanimously to have him continue to fill that role for another year. Board members are expected to take a formal vote to confirm that decision at Monday’s ceremony.

A reception will immediately follow the inauguration in the State of Maine Room.
