The Logan City School Board is looking for qualified candidates to fill the vacancy on its school board in District 4. The vacancy is being created by Connie Morgan, who announced last month that she would be moving outside of the district boundaries.
According to a public notice about the vacancy, interviews of everyone who applies for the position will take place in an open meeting during the week of February 13-16. Following the interviews, the Board of Education will meet, “in a closed session to discuss the character, professional competence, or physical or mental health of the applicants.”
The interim board member will be named at the school board meeting on February 27th.
District 4 includes the Adams Elementary neighborhood. According to the school district, in order to be a qualified candidate you must live within the District 4 boundaries, have lived for at least one year in that district, and be a registered voter. Employees of the Logan City School District may apply to fill the seat, but in order to do so they will have to resign from their employment with the district (board members are not allowed to be employed by the district for conflict of interest reasons).
The interim position would be effective March 1st and run through the end of the year. If the person selected would like to fill the remaining time on the board, he or she would need to file for candidacy with the Cache County Clerk’s office between March 9-15 of this year. If publicly elected, he or she would fill the remaining two years of the term through December 31, 2020.
Residents who have any questions, or want to apply, may contact the Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent, Stacey Hunter, at the Logan City School District Offices at 101 W. Center St. Logan, UT or call at (435) 755-2300.
