The Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District has started to replace several members of the Glen Lake School Board.

Four members of the seven-member board resigned on Wednesday, in protest of the departure of the district’s superintendent.

The TBAISD is now looking for applications from people who reside in Glen Lake to finish the remaining terms. Two of the appointments will last for a year, while the others go through 2022.

Next week, the TBAISD will consider the runner-up from the last school board election, Brooke Hazael-Massieux, for one of the seats. The district hopes to fill the remaining positions by July 11 so that they will have a full board to find the next superintendent. 

Glen Lake Community Schools has been dealing with conflicts between the current superintendent and teachers since last year.
