Two Fox Chapel board members quit
There will be two seats open on the Fox Chapel Area School Board as of April 7.
Longtime members Sherman Snyder and Robin Baum last week each submitted a resignation to the district.
Neither was available for comment.
Both Snyder and Baum are resigning for personal reasons, district coordinator of communications Bonnie Berzonski said.
The board is expected to accept the resignations during its meeting on April 7 at the high school.
Snyder has served on the board since being elected in 1997. He ran unopposed for the position just four months ago in the November general election.
Baum came on board in May 2005 when she was appointed to fill a vacancy. Both represent Region 1, which includes Sharpsburg and Wards 2, 3 and 4 of O'Hara.
Both terms expire at the end of 2015.
Anyone interested in serving on the school board can apply beginning April 8. Candidates must reside in Region 1 and be 18 years of age or older. Applicants must have lived in the district for at least one year.
Deadline to apply is 4 p.m. April 21. Applications can be downloaded at www.fcasd.edu. The packet can also be faxed to 412-781-7901. Public interviews will be conducted at 12:30 p.m. April 26 in the large group instruction room at the high school. The board will vote afterward.
