School board to interview candidates
The Basehor-Linwood School Board will schedule a date to interview candidates interested in filling a board vacancy during its monthly meeting Monday, Sept. 8.
In July, Ron Owen resigned from position No. 4, which covers all areas within school district boundaries north of Parallel Road. He resigned for personal reasons.
Since then, the school district designed a procedure to fill Owen's term, which expires in June 2005.
Those interested in filling the vacancy should apply to the School Board no later than 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 19. Candidates must fill out a questionnaire and write a letter of interest.
The questionnaires can be picked up at the school board office or sent via mail to anyone interested, school officials said.
As part of its agenda Monday night, school board members will schedule a date to interview candidates. Candidates are encouraged to attend the School Board meetings Sept. 8 and 15 or contact current board members for more information about the vacancy and its requirements.
School district officials said the replacement candidates should possess attributes including a broad background of experience, tolerance, a sincere desire to serve the community and the capability to learn and grow.
For more information on the vacancy, contact Don Swartz, director of building operations, at (913) 724-1396.
