Due to the recent resignation of a public school teacher member, the call for nominations has been extended. Two of the available seats are for five-year terms that begin on May 1, 2019. The teacher filling the third seat will serve the remainder of the resigning board member’s term, which will expire May 1, 2021. The deadline to return nomination materials is November 30, 2018.
