CALN » Coatesvill­e area school board member Kimberly Mammel ended her term as a board member early on Friday when she submitted her letter of resignatio­n.

“On behalf of the board, it has been a pleasure to work with Ms. Mammel,” school board President Neil Campbell said in a statement issued by the school district Saturday afternoon. “The board will now begin the process of filling the vacancy.”

To apply for the position, email a resume and letter of interest to Recording Secretary Karen L. Jackson at kljackson@coatesvill­e.k12.a.us.

According to school district officials, Campbell received Mammel’s letter or resignatio­n stating she is moving outside of the Region III area and can no longer sit as a board member.

Region III consists of East Fallowfiel­d, Sadsbury, Modena, West Caln and South Coatesvill­e.

The school district posted an announceme­nt regarding the vacancy on the district’s website. The board has 30 days to fill the vacancy and the interview process will begin shortly.

School district solicitor Mike Levin said in the prepared statement that the board will review applicatio­ns submitted by interested parties and a public meeting will be scheduled to interview candidates.

Mammel, whose term expires in 2017, served on the board for a year after elected to fill the vacant seat left open by former school board member William Sweigart. During her time on the board she sat on the education committee. She also took part in selecting a new superinten­dent, hiring a new solicitor, approving the developmen­t of a new website and helped review and revise school board policies.

The selected candidate will serve a year of Mammel’s term and would need to run in May’s primary election to fill the seat for another two years, or until 2017. Attempts to contact Mammel for comment Saturday were unsuccessf­ul.
