The Appointment Process (Option #3) was approved at a Special Board of Education Meeting on April 27, 2020.

State law requires any individual who is filling a school board vacancy to be a resident and qualified elector of the school district.

Any eligible person who desires to be considered for appointment to this public office must complete and file the following documents:

2. A sworn Declaration of Eligibility. The Declaration must be sworn to before a notary or another official who is authorized to administer oaths. 

To ensure consideration, the application and a scanned copy of the notarized Declaration of Eligibility must be emailed by May 8, 2020 to Christy Westfall, Executive Assistant to the Superintendent and Board of Education - westfalc@elmbrookschools.org and the original, notarized copy of the Declaration of Eligibility must be provided when the appointee takes the oath of office. 

It is the sole responsibility of the individual who is submitting the materials to verify that the District has received the materials on a timely basis.

In the event you are selected to interview, the interviews will be held in at 4:00 pm on May 12, 2020. The interview will be held virtually, in a forum setting, with all selected candidates. The interview will be livestreamed for viewing at https://www.youtube.com/user/elmbrookschoolsmedia
