Dexter’s Board of Education will look to fill empty seat in February

Michael Wendorf, who has has been a dedicated Dexter Community School District’s Board of Education board member for the last 14 years and has served as Board President for the last five years, has announced he will be stepping down, effective the end of this month.

“Michael Wendorf has always put the best interests of our students, staff, families and district at the forefront of any decision,” said Julie Schumaker, vice president of the DCSD Board of Education. “As board president, he has fostered the board’s consensus decision-making process and has been an effective leader of our district.

“In addition, as an attorney, he has provided a valuable legal perspective on district issues.”

Wendorf, elected in 2005, has stated that he intends to step down at the end of this month. By law, the Board must appoint a new school board member within 30 days of a vacancy.

“Information regarding the vacancy will be shared with the community in early February,” said Schumaker.

Those interested in serving on the school board will be asked to submit a letter of interest with interviews to be held in late February and the expectation that a new school board member will be appointed by the end of the month.

The board will need to elect a new president at the first meeting in February (Feb 10).
