West Jefferson Hills seeks applicants after Schreiber resigns from school board

West Jefferson Hills School Board members are seeking letters of interest from residents wishing to fill an open seat on the school board after Darlene Schreiber resigned last week from her position.

Schreiber's resignation was approved unanimously at a special voting session Aug. 16.

Schreiber, who was appointed to fill a vacancy in November, had served a four-year term on the board before losing re-election in 2015. The vacant position's term continues through December 2017.

Schrieber said she resigned for personal reasons.

Any interested resident of Pleasant Hills, Jefferson Hills or West Elizabeth should submit a letter of interest to the West Jefferson Hills School Board by Friday.

Letters of interest should be mailed to Tracy Harris, board secretary, at 835 Old Clairton Road, Jefferson Hills, PA 15025. Letters can be faxed to 412-655-9544 or emailed to

“We want to get this out there as far-reaching as possible in the community so that people are aware,” board President Brian Fernandes said.

The board has 30 days from the voting session to appoint a new member.

The goal is for board members to interview those who apply, if time permits, Fernandes said. Board members plan to fill the vacancy at a special meeting scheduled before Sept. 15.

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.
