WSD School Board Opening
Notice to all Winooski residents,
The WSD School Board recently received a letter of resignation from Mohamed Abdi resigning his 2-year position on the Board. He is seeking his post secondary degree, will have to spend six months out of the country for his studies and he felt that this would not allow him to fulfill his duties to the Board. We thank Mohamed for his willingness to get involved and appreciate his time on the Board. This now opens up a seat from August 2016 through our February 2017 meeting. By our charter we must fill this vacancy until the next election. We will be holding interviews on July 13, 2016 at 6:30 pm in the school library. This is a chance to get a flavor for this position. We have budget meetings in November and December as well as negotiations this fall with teachers and support staff. This position will open up again in March and will have to be re-elected at that time. This is a great opportunity for anyone who has considered being a part of the School Board as it is a short term to allow better understanding of the Board processes before running for a full 2-year term. If you are interested or would like more information on the position and responsibilities please give me a call at 802-310-4032 (after 6pm weekdays, anytime weekends).
-WSD School Board President
