Deadline is Thursday to apply for open Cape School Board seat

Thursday, May 13, 2010

The deadline is approaching to apply for the open position on the Cape Girardeau School Board.

Letters of interest are due by 5 p.m. on Thursday. Dr. Steve Trautwein announced his resignation last month because he and his family are relocating to Seattle. Trautwein was appointed to the board in September 2001 and re-elected to three three-year terms. His current term is set to expire in April.

The board will appoint a replacement to start in June and serve until the April 2011 election. Candidates will be interviewed and chosen during open-session meetings, which is in accordance with district policy.

To qualify, applicants must be a U.S. citizen, a resident of the district, a resident of Missouri for at least one year and at least 24 years old. Letters can be submitted to Board Secretary, Cape Girardeau Public Schools, 301 N. Clark Ave., Cape Girardeau, MO 63701.
