Applications available for open Board position

The Hermiston School District Board of Education is accepting applications for an open Board position.

 

The vacancy, due to the resignation of Position 4 member Jason Middleton, is effective immediately. The Board accepted Mr. Middleton’s resignation and declared the vacancy, pursuant with ORS 332.030, at its special meeting on September 24.

 

“I want to thank Mr. Middleton for his service on the Board,” said Interim Superintendent Mooney. “Thanks to his guidance and leadership, our Board continues to support district staff to be able to provide the best possible educational opportunities for our students. His contributions are greatly appreciated.” 

 

Applications are now available for pick up at the District Office, located at 305 SW 11th Street, and must be returned to the District Office by 3 p.m., on Friday, October 5.

 

Submitted applications will be reviewed and narrowed down to a group of finalists, who will be interviewed by the Board at its regular meeting on Monday, October 8. The selected individual will be appointed on October 22 and sworn into the office November 5.

 

November 8-11, 2018, is the Board’s annual convention hosted by the Oregon School Boards Association. The appointed individual will be asked to plan to attend this conference, sponsored by the district, with the other board members and district administration.
