With the resignation of Bill Nobles from the Archuleta School District 50 Joint Board of Directors earlier this summer, the board declared a board vacancy in District 3 on Tuesday and is soliciting letters of interest to fill that seat.
The board announced its intention to accept letters of interest for the seat at its Tuesday night meeting.
According to a decision made by the board Tuesday night, individuals interested in being considered for appointment to the seat need to submit a letter of interest by Tuesday, Aug. 30, to the District Office at 309 Lewis St. Those letters can also be mailed to Executive Secretary Robyn Bennett, Archuleta School District 50 Joint, P.O. Box 1498, Pagosa Springs, CO 81147.
Letters of interest must address the following questions:
• Why do you want to be on the board?
• What is your philosophy of education as it relates to serving on the board?
Individuals interested in filling the seat must be a resident of District 1 and anyone convicted of committing a sexual offense against a child is ineligible to serve in any district seat.
The school district describes District 1 boundaries as the area north of U.S. 160 that includes parts of the Pines I and Pines II subdivisions; north of the subdivisions, the district is bounded on the west by Piedra Road (CR 600) to Hinsdale County. The district is bounded on the east by CR 600 to Stevens Lake Road, up Stevens Lake Road to Dutton Creek, then bounded by Plumtaw Road to Fourmile Road to Mineral County.
A detailed map of the districts and their boundaries can be obtained from the Archuleta County Clerk and Recorder’s Office at 449 San Juan St.
The board will hold a special meeting at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 6, in the Pagosa Springs Junior High School library to interview candidates.
Following the interviews, the board will make a selection and swear in the new director during the regularly scheduled board meeting beginning at 6 p.m.
For additional information, call the district office at 264-2228, Ext. 401 or 402.
