An Ida Township School Board member said she was resigning from her position with the school district because has been bullied.

Donna Banker, a career volunteer with the district, said she endured relentless bullying.

Her family said she did not want to discuss it publicly. However, since the moment she joined the board, the family said she was constantly taunted from someone. She repeatedly told the board about the bullying, family members said.

They said the person, who remained anonymous, left hurtful letters on Banker’s car and texted her.

It was not threatening, the nature,” said Rick Carsten, Ida Schools superintendent. “The communications just attacked her personally. It attacked her belief systems and her integrity more than anything.”

Ida Township community members plan to meet next week to discuss Banker’s bullying claims.
