Evergreen Public Schools seeks new director in District 4

Rachael Rogers submits resignation from school board

By , Columbian staff writer

School board member Rachael Rogers has resigned from her position on the Evergreen Public Schools Board of Directors, the district announced in a press release Tuesday evening.

“It is with sadness and regret that I must resign my position as a Board Director for Evergreen Public Schools effective immediately,” Rogers said in a letter sent to her fellow directors.

“I have the utmost respect for you and the incredible work you have done and will undoubtedly continue to do. It has been an honor and a privilege to work with you to further our District’s work and vision to educate all children in the best way possible. I will miss working with you, district staff, and our community,” she added.

Board vice president Ginny Gronwoldt said Rogers’ departure is due to a personal, private matter.

Rogers, a Clark County senior deputy prosecutor, replaced Todd Yuzuriha on the board of directors in February 2019 and was reelected later that year.

Evergreen is now recruiting Rogers’ replacement.

Applicants must be registered voters living within the District 4 boundaries, which represents the southeastern portion of the school district. All necessary documents must be completed and submitted by Jan. 31.

The board will review candidates in the coming weeks and make a decision by the end of February. The appointee will serve throughout the remainder of the current term, which lasts until November 2023.
