The Dixon School Board has a reputation for long meetings that may last for a few hours. However, the meeting Wednesday night seemed to be over before it started.
The board breezed through the agenda and for some on the board; it was the last time they will sit through an entire meeting.
Superintendent Margo Empen said this is an emotional time for board members, teachers and many others as the school year is quickly coming to a close.
Empen pointed out that High School Graduation is a month away.
She said she is very proud of the current school board because of the hard work they did. She also said this board will hold a special place in her heart since they were the ones who hired her as Superintendent.
The new board will be sworn in at a special meeting in about a week.
