New Palm Beach County School Board member Barbara McQuinn was sworn in today and board member Chuck Shaw won another yearlong term as chairman.

Sitting on the school board dais for the first time, newly elected McQuinn thanked acquaintances and supporters and said she welcomed the opportunity to serve.

“I am ready to get to work for all of the students of Palm Beach County,” she said.

Board members Shaw and Frank Barbieri, who were each re-elected without opposition, were also sworn in for new 4-year terms.

By an unanimous vote, board members granted Shaw another term as chairman. As chairman, he will continue to run the board’s meetings and has extra authority to add items to the board’s meeting agendas.

Debra Robinson, the board’s longest-serving member, was named school board vice chairwoman, replacing Barbieri.
