School Board Member Appointment Process

May 28, 2015 deadline for Valparaiso School Board Applications:
Public invited: At the Valparaiso City Council meeting that begins at 7pm on April 27th, parents, students, teachers and the general public will be invited to share their views on the short, intermediate and long term issues and on anything else of interest or concern as it would relate to the school board member appointment process. On April 13th, the Valparaiso Community School Administration presented to the City Council their “State of the Schools” report. That written report will be posted on the city’s website.

Each year the term for one seat on the Valparaiso Community School board expires on June 30th and comes up for renewal. One of the important duties of the Valparaiso City Council is to seek applications during the month of May from citizens who are interested in serving on the School Board. Applicants must be at least 21 years of age and residents of the City of Valparaiso. This year party affiliation does not matter. Application forms are available on-line or at the Clerk/Treasurer's office at City Hall. Completed applications are due back to the City Clerk/Treasurer's office in City Hall by 4:30pm May 28, 2015. Up to five applicants will be selected for two interviews to be conducted on Monday afternoons on June 8th with questions from the City Council members and then again on June 22nd with questions from the public. That evening, the City Council will make its selection for the appointment. Thank you very much for your consideration in applying for this very important community position.
