St. Maries Schools is seeking interested residents to fill a vacancy on its school board.

The board declared the Zone 5 Trustee position vacant after the resignation of former trustee Devon Barta, who resigned July 1 after moving out of the zone’s boundaries.

Those interested must be 18 years of age and a US citizen who has resided in Zone 5 for the school district for at least 30 days. Applicants may send a letter of interest to St. Maries Joint School District No. 41, PO Box 384, 240 S. 11th Street in St. Maries by July 19, 2019.

The finalist will be appointed to complete Ms. Barta’s four-year term through December 31, 2019. The Zone 5 Trustee position is up for election during the November 5, 2019 general election.

An exact description of Zone 5 boundaries can be obtained from the District Office, and Trustee zone maps are available for review. Zone 5 is generally located in the northwest corner of the School District and encompasses portions of the west side of the City of St. Maries, Shepherd Road, Cottonwood Drive, Shay Hill and portions of the Benewah and the Parkline areas.

For further information, please contact Superintendent Alica Holthaus at the District Administration Offices. The telephone number is 245-2579.
