Two Fox Chapel board members quit

| Thursday, March 20, 2014, 2:18 p.m.

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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
