Bobby offers statement on school board resignation

March 12, 2014

During a recent meeting of the Ridgway Area School Board, Lucy Bobby, who had served on the board for the past five years, announced her resignation. As of Feb. 19, Bobby had stepped down from her position which is set to be filled by Andy Thompson, who reportedly will be sworn in prior to the April board meeting.
Bobby cited frustration with the Pennsylvania Common Core standards, and other state and federal mandates as her main reason for stepping down. After contacting Bobby for comment, she responded with an e-mailed statement in an "attempt to address [her resignation] in a thorough, responsible and public way."
