Two Central Bucks School Board members submit resignations


The two GOP Central Bucks School Board members who verbally resigned last week, made it official Monday, said school board president Karen Smith.

Lisa Sciscio and Debra Cannon submitted their resignations in writing, said Smith. A special meeting to accept the resignations is set for Friday at 4 p.m. at the district’s administrative offices at 20 Welden Drive in Doylestown.

The Republican board members both said they were leaving at the Feb. 13 board meeting, after arguing they were not being provided information from the school board’s attorney, David Conn. Specifically, they said information about the district’s investigation into the legality of CBSD’s separation agreement with its former superintendent Abe Lucabaugh was not made available to them.

Lucabaugh abruptly resigned late last year after the November elections flipped the board to a Democratic majority.

Smith and other Democratic board members said no information was withheld and all information on all matters involving the school district is available to all board members.

Sciscio and Cannon’s terms were to expire in 2025.
