District 90 seeks new board member

District 90O’FALLON – District 90 is seeking a new member for its Board of Education following the resignation of Chris Pulcher on Friday, August 12.

Pulcher, who was first elected to the board in 2013, left the board for personal and professional reasons, according to Superintendent Carrie Hruby. Pulcher had been absent from many recent meetings.

Whoever is selected to replace Pulcher on the board will have to run for election in the April 2017 election.

“Under the law, the board has 45 days to appoint a replacement member. If the board doesn’t make an appointment, the regional office has 30 days after that. And then after that point, it just stays vacant. The board has every intention to replace that position,” Hruby explained.

Applications are due by September 2 at 3 p.m. at the district office.  From there the board will hold interviews and narrow down the applicants. The board expects to announce a

replacement at their meeting on September 20.
