Hadden steps down from school board

The South Whidbey School Board is seeking applicants to fill a vacancy on the board.

Superintendent Jo Moccia said Board Member Julie Hadden is stepping down because she has taken on much more responsibility at her job with Brandman University.

An applicant is needed to serve the remainder of Hadden’s term, which expires November 2021.

Hadden occupies the at large position, meaning whoever fills her position can live anywhere within the school district.

Hadden was first appointed to the school board in 2014. She will stay on the board through the end of August.

Interested citizens are invited to apply for the position by July 31. Nominations can also be made if the nominees are registered voters in South Whidbey residing within the school district.

The remaining four board members will interview applicants and select someone to fill the position.

To apply, visit the school district’s website, sw.wednet.edu. An application form, available online, must be submitted along with a one-page summary on why the applicant wants to be a school board member and what qualifications he or she has.

Applications can be sent to South Whidbey School District — Attn: Kristy Macarro, 5520 Maxwelton Rd, Langley, WA, 98260.

Questions can be directed to 360-221-6808 ext. 2245.
