Following an executive session, the Salem-Keizer Public Schools governing board will meet at 6 p.m. Tuesday for its upcoming business session.

The board continues to meet in person but is only allowing members of the public to participate virtually.

Community members can give testimony by phone, Zoom or written submission. A lottery system will be used to select speakers, according to the board agenda, and 45 minutes will be allotted for public comment.

The focus of the night will be filling the Zone 6 seat after the recent resignation of Danielle Bethell.

Former Salem-Keizer school board member Danielle Bethell.

Bethell was elected in 2019 to represent Keizer’s zone on the seven-member school board. In 2020, she successfully ran as a Republican to also serve as a Marion County commissioner.

On Oct. 10, Bethell notified board leadership, Superintendent Christy Perry and the board’s attorney, Paul Dakopolos, via email that she was resigning, effective immediately. She did not offer any additional information or explanation.
