The Portland Board of Public Education will hold a ceremony to inaugurate its newest members on Monday, Dec. 5 at 4 p.m. in the Portland City Council Chambers at Portland City Hall.

An official vote for school board chair also will take place Dec. 5. In a unanimous straw vote at the board’s Nov. 15 caucus, board members chose District 5 board member Marnie Morrione, the current board chair, for a second one-year term as chair.

The board will inaugurate two members who were re-elected in the Nov. 8 election: District 3 member Laurie Davis and at-large member Anna Trevorrow. Also inaugurated will be board newcomer Roberto Rodriguez, who was elected to an at-large school board seat.

Also inaugurated will be four student representatives who will each represent one of the district's high schools: Portland High School; Deering High School; Casco Bay High School; and the Portland Arts and Technology High School or PATHS.

A reception, open to the public, will be held in the State of Maine Room following the ceremony.
