North Thurston Public Schools is accepting nominations and applications for a vacancy on its School Board.
According to a district news release, a candidate must be a U.S. citizen, a qualified voter of the school district, and live within Director District No. 3. District No. 3 is the east side of the district, serving neighborhoods around Salish Middle School, River Ridge High School, Nisqually Middle School and Meadows Elementary School.
The vacancy is due to the recent resignation of Aaron Owada, who was first elected to the School Board in 1997. Owada said he believes it’s time to bring “new blood and new energy” to the position.
The School Board plans to appoint someone to serve until the General Election in November.
Applications are due by 3 p.m. Jan. 13. For more information, contact the superintendent’s office at 360-412-4413 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
