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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
“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.
