Please consider applying for the open position on the East Penn School Board. Longtime board member Francee Fuller resigned at the last meeting, leaving an open seat on the board. A (short) application is due by October 3, and board members will appoint someone after public interviews on October 10.
My chief focus in the selection process will be finding a volunteer who understands the critical role public schools play in our democracy. I hope we have applicants who can be both a strong advocate for our schools and a frank critic of policies and procedures that can be improved; someone who can make decisions transparently, based on facts and evidence rather than reactionary emotion or political ideology. It can be a tough gig, but also very rewarding! You can get more details by clicking here.
