The Central Bucks School Board unanimously accepted the resignation of member Dr. Nicole Young at its Feb. 5 meeting.
Young announced her intent to resign Jan. 22 because she will be moving out of the district in a few weeks. Her resignation was accepted by the school board Feb. 5.
According to law, a replacement for Young must be named within 30 days of the board’s accepting her resignation. Young was elected as a representative of Region IV in November 2017. Her replacement must also be a resident of that region for a period of one year, which covers Warrington Township 1, 3, 4, 5 and Warwick Township 1.
Solicitor Jeffrey P. Garton explained that if the board chooses to conduct interviews, they must be done in a public meeting. And when the board selects someone that person will only serve through the end of this year, not for the full term that Dr. Young had. Young’s term would’ve expired Dec. 31, 2021. The partial term will be subject to an election in November. So, the new person elected will then begin a two-year term in December.
“She will be missed,” said school board member Beth Darcy, after the vote. “She brought value to the board and a good prospective and it’s unfortunate that she didn’t get to work with us longer.”
The district will post the opening on its website, cbsd.org and social media. Anyone interested in the position is encouraged to contact the administration office to apply.
