JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio – There was an empty seat at the Buckeye Local Board of Education meeting Monday night after Superintendent Mark Miller announced that board President James Cesario had resigned.

Cesario’s resignation left the board contemplating how it will replace him, while residents couldn’t help but wonder why he resigned in the first place.

After a brief executive session, things began to really heat up once safety became the focus.

It was a meeting that last more than 2 hours as board members, members of the staff, and residents bickered their way through half of the agenda - with many of the remaining issues being tabled after safety became the focus.

There were questions about why the board isn’t asking the people who are there about school security? They said they don’t want mall rent-a-cops. It went on without a decision on safety in the district.

At one point, News9 caught up with Miller, who summed it up best.

“A lot of times there’s politics that get involved, and I think that we have adults here that need to put their political aspirations aside,” he said. “Most of them are pretty good people. Maybe we can get this done in the interest of the district.

The board has 30 days to replace Cesario, a process that can begin in 10 days.
