The Eastmont School District is suddenly without a full complement of sitting board members.
Just prior to the board’s regularly-scheduled meeting on Monday, Position 4 Director Joy Dawe announced her immediately-effective resignation.
District officials report Dawe was recently terminated from her job as a nurse at Confluence Health for not being vaccinated against COVID-19, and that action forced her to obtain employment out of state.
The district now has 90 days to appoint a replacement for Dawe or have one appointed by the North Central Educational Service District.
Dawe, who defeated John Steward for the at-large seat on a narrow vote last November, is the second member of the Eastmont School Board to resign in the last four months.
