From the South Milwaukee School District …
The School Board for the School District of South Milwaukee has an available opening. Letters of interest, including why you are interested in being a School Board member, are due to the District Office on Thursday, September 13, 2018, by 4:00 pm. Letters may be mailed or dropped off to 901 15th Avenue, South Milwaukee, WI 53172, attention Jessica Hess.
School Board interviews with candidates will be held on or about Wednesday, September 19, 2018, during an open meeting. It is anticipated that the selected candidate will be sworn into the School Board on October 3, 2018. The term will run through spring 2019, at which time there will be a formal election process for a standard three-year term.
The candidate will replace Pat Bordak, who is stepping down from the board after serving 13 years. You can see more details in the proclamation in this post, which declared July 11, 2018, as Patricia Bordak Day in the South Milwaukee School District.
I want to personally wish Pat well. She is a strong advocate for our first-class local schools, and a respected leader in this community. Her passion for education and South Milwaukee can’t be overstated. Good luck, Pat. You will be missed.
I hope there are number of strong candidates to replace her. Please consider stepping up!
