Candidates sought for board vacancies in White River, Carbonado districts

Swearing in ceremonies are fast approaching, so turn in those applications soon.

The White River School District continues seeking candidates to fill a vacancy on the five-member school board.

The open slot was created when Tawny Sanabria, who had been on the board for five years, stepped down for personal reasons.

The remaining board members are now charged with finding a replacement for the Director District 2 post. It is a lengthy process, with applications taken through Oct. 23. The board’s goal is to see the favored candidate take the oath of office during their Nov. 7 meeting.

The person filling the vacancy will join current board members Mike Jansen, Denise Vogel, Cassie Pearson and Matt Scheer. The selected candidate will serve until the next regularly-scheduled board election.

Interested candidates must reside within Director District 2. The school district describes the area as straddling both sides of state Route 410, from 96th Street East on the north to South Prairie Road/Pioneer Way on the south.

For questions about the duties and responsibilities of a school board director, for clarification about eligibility or to determine if a home address falls within the boundaries of District 2, contact the superintendent’s office at 360-829-3814.

CARBONADO ALSO SEEKING CANDIDATES

Up the road in the Carbonado Historical School District, there’s an opening on the five-person board. Anyone interested should act soon, as applications are due by this Friday, Sept. 14.

Applications can be picked up in the school’s administration office. The form also is available on the district website, www.carbonado.k12.wa.us.

School board members must reside within the district boundaries.

The district serves students in kindergarten through eighth grade.

The person chosen for the vacancy will join current board members Danielle Brooks, Sue McBride, Laurie McNabb and Tom Morgan.
