The Woodburn School District will begin accepting applications to fill a vacancy on the School Board. Applications are due on November 30, 2018. Applicants should be available for an interview on December 4, 2018 at the Regular School Board Meeting.
The candidate that is appointed to fill the vacant seat, will need to run for election in May 2019 to fill out the remaining two years of the Position 2 term. There are a few requirements for applicants. They must have lived in the district at least 12 months prior to appointment; not be an officer or employee of the district; and be a registered voter in the school district.
Gustavo Gutierrez-Gomez has served on the Woodburn School Board since March 2015. The school district and school board are appreciative of his service and dedication to our students and look forward to his continued involvement in the Woodburn community. Gutierrez-Gomez resigned to allow more time for his family and personal life.
The School Board meets twice a month, with an additional two meetings each May for annual budget review. There are additional service opportunities within the school district. Currently there are vacancies on the Bond Advisory & Accountability Committee (quarterly meetings) and the Budget Committee (3-4 meetings in April/May), as well.
Applications are available on the district website at www.woodburnsd.org or in person at the District Office (1390 Meridian Drive, Woodburn). For more information, please contact Jenne Marquez, Executive Board Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org or (503) 981-2701.
