Redmond School District Seeks Applicants for Board Position #1


The Redmond School District is seeking qualified people to apply for a vacancy on its Board of Directors.

The board consists of five members elected at large.  Those interested must be registered voters and residents of the Redmond School District for one year immediately preceding the appointment.

The board’s major responsibility is setting policy. The board hires the superintendent who in turn hires staff to put policies into practice. The superintendent is accountable to the board for managing the district according to board policy. The board is responsible for approving the budget, setting district goals, asking voters to approve bond measures and local option levies for facilities and operations, guiding collective bargaining, and evaluating the superintendent.  A board member must be a skill decision-maker and team player, a public-education advocate, and a vital link between community and school.

Applications will be accepted until Monday, October 17, 2022 at 4:00 p.m.  An applicant will be appointed, or interviews will be scheduled on November 9, 2022. Please contact Executive Assistant Gina Blanchette, at 541-923-8250 for more information. 

 The person appointed will serve as soon as appointed through June 30, 2023 and will fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Shawn Hartfield effective September 28, 2022.   Anyone wishing to be elected to serve the remaining two-year portion of the four-year term may file an application with the Deschutes County Clerk’s Office for placement on the May 2023 ballot.
