Three new members take their seats today during the Washoe County School District Board of Trustees meeting.

Ken Grein, Scott Kelley and Barbara McClaury, representing districts D, E and G, respectively, will be sworn in and join incumbents Dan Carne, Barbara Clark, Estela Gutierrez and Nancy Hollinger.

Grein is a native Nevadan who served 32 years in the district in a number of capacities. He was WCSD superintendent of operations when he retired in July 2008.

Kelley is a graduate of the University of Nevada, Reno, a former military paratrooper-journalist and served five years in the Nevada National Guard. He ran two unsuccessful campaigns for Reno City Council against Dwight Dortch in 2006 and Washoe County Commission in 2007.

McLaury worked in the district for 34 years as a teacher, reading coordinator, principal and senior director overseeing the district’s Title I programs. She retired from the district in June 2008.

The new members will serve four-year terms.

Items on today’s board agenda include a discussion of legislative issues and a purchase and sale agreement for 434 Laurel St.

A brief presentation will also be heard on a proposal for new access to O’Brien Middle School.

The meeting is at 4 p.m. at the Washoe County School District Administration Building at 425 E. Ninth St. in Reno.
