BURLINGTON, Kan. (AP) -- A woman who is suing an east-central Kansas school board will soon be serving on that board.

Monique Hart won an election to the Burlington Unified School District, and will take her seat in late June. That's just days after Hart's $7.4 million lawsuit against the board is scheduled to go to court.

Hart sued the board and superintendent Cliff Williams last May. She claims Williams gave the board false information about her that ended her job, and that the district published confidential information on her employment.

Hart worked for the district from 2000 until the district did not renew her contract in 2011.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/ZHGXXL) a judge dismissed claims against Williams but the board is still fighting claims of negligence and breach of fiduciary duty.
