The New Kensington-Arnold School Board will be looking for a new member.

School Director Carly Skinner, 38, of New Kensington, announced her resignation from the board via her school board Facebook page on Thursday. She served the district's Region II.

“My family is moving out of state in a few weeks due to unexpected life changes, and this will make me ineligible to continue serving on the board,” Skinner wrote. “It has been an honor to serve my community and I will always support the Valley Vikings.”

Skinner was elected to a four-year term in November after having been unopposed then and in last May's primary.

On her Facebook page, she described herself as “the daughter of a 20+ year teacher and administrator who pursued a career in engineering. I left engineering to raise my children, and recently opened a local arts & crafts studio.”

School Board President Bob Pallone said Skinner was a nice woman who had good ideas and questions.

“She really worked hard on educating herself on all the processes and procedures that go with the board,” he said.

Attempts to reach Skinner for comment Monday afternoon weren't immediately unsuccessful.

Pallone expects the board to accept Skinner's resignation when it meets March 22.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
