The Washougal School District is accepting applications to fill a position on its Board of Directors. The successful applicant serves Director District 4, succeeding Karen Rubino, who has resigned from the board effective September 27, 2016.

Karen Rubino was elected to the Washougal School Board in 2012 and her commitment to the district is deeply appreciated. Her resignation is due to work commitments in Seattle, making it difficult for her to attend board meetings and spend the volunteer time required for the board position.

"It has been a true pleasure to serve on the Washougal School Board and work with an outstanding group of people including the other board members and district staff," said Rubino. "The Washougal School Board is a very effective and caring team and I will greatly miss being a part of it. I look forward to the opening of the new schools and continued student success."

School Board members are responsible for policy and governance of the Washougal School District and for providing direction to the superintendent.

The appointment is for the Washougal School Board - District 4 director position. Applicants must be registered voters and reside within District 4. The director will serve until the next regular school district election, November 17, 2017, at which time a successor shall be elected for the unexpired term ending December 31, 2019.

Applications are due September 16 and may be downloaded online: http://www.washougal.k12.wa.us/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/board-application-2016-Dist.4.pdf. For more information about the position and residency requirements please contact Cassi Marshall, (360) 954-3005 or cassi.marshall@washougalsd.org.
