The Cleveland Board of Education now has an all-female cabinet of officers following elections which took place during the board's meeting Monday.

Board members unanimously re-elected Dawn Robinson, who represents the 3rd District, to serve as the board's chairman. She has been re-elected every year since 2016. 

"It's an honor," Robinson told her fellow board members. "Thank you all." 

Peggy Pesterfield, representing the city's 4th District, was unanimously elected the board's vice-chairman. She takes over for At-Large board member Charlie Cogdill. 

Krista McKay, who represents the 2nd District, was elected the board's chairman pro-tem for the second year in a row. 

"You-all turned it all over to the women," Robinson quipped as she addressed the board. 

During the meeting, Robinson also gave a brief update on the annual evaluation for Cleveland City Schools Director Dr. Russell Dyer. 

Dyer will be having individual meetings with each board member in the coming weeks, and board members will each evaluate him using a previously agreed-upon rubric.

The results of his evaluation will be presented in the board's next regular voting meeting, scheduled for Jan. 31.
