Q&A Session for Interested Board of Education Candidates is tonight (Feb. 12)

The Dexter Board of Education (BOE) will hold a Q&A session this Wednesday, Feb. 12 from 6-7 p.m. in the Creekside Media Center for any community members interested in learning more about the role of a Board member.  With the departure of former BOE President, Michael Wendorf, there is a vacant seat available which must be filled by the end of February.  The term of this seat will run through December 2020.

Current Board members, Dr. Julie Schumaker, Ron Darr and Mara Greatorex, will be on hand to provide a comprehensive overview of Board membership, including time commitment and responsibilities, as well as to answer any questions.  At Monday night’s BOE meeting, Schumaker was voted in as the new Board President, and Ron Darr was approved to fill the Vice President position.  Greatorex currently serves as the Board Secretary.

Applications for the vacant seat must be received no later than February 19th at 4:00 p.m.  Candidates should submit the following information: notarized affidavit affirming application eligibility (available at www.dexterschools.org/board), resume including home address, telephone number and email address, letter of intent no more than one page long which details the candidate’s experiences and qualifications they would bring to board service, and no more than two letters of reference (if desired – optional).  All information regarding the application process, including a document detailing board member expectations, can be found on the BOE website at www.dexterschools.org/board.

Selected candidates will interview with the Board of Education on the evenings of Tuesday, February 25th and Wednesday, February 26th (if needed). The Board will select an appointee immediately following the interviews.

Anyone interested in applying should contact Hope Vestergaard at vestergaardh@dexterschools.org or 734-424-4102.
