Resignation leaves Woodland school board vacancy



WOODLAND — Woodland Public Schools’ board of directors accepted Steve Madsen’s resignation at Monday’s meeting.

Madsen was on the board for four years.

“Steve will be missed,” Jim Bays, board president, said in a news release. “He brought a valuable perspective and experience to the board of directors.”

The Woodland school board approved a timeline for appointment of a replacement for Madsen. Interested parties must be registered voters and live in Director Area 5, which includes Ariel and Cougar.

If the appointee wishes to remain on the board, the new member must run for re-election in November 2013 to fill the unexpired term.

A description and map of the director area, as well as the application for the position, can be found on the school district website,“>”>

Applications and letters of interest are due to the Woodland School District by 4 p.m. Dec. 13. The school board will interview candidates at the Dec. 19 meeting, then make the appointment.
