H-PT Schools searching for new board member

HOUGHTON — Houghton-Portage Township Schools is looking for a new board member.

The person will replace former board member Amy Schrank, who had announced during the last school year she would be leaving the board due to a change in residence.

The vacancy will be posted, at which point it must be filled within 30 days, said Superintendent Doreen Klingbeil. Applicants must send a notice of interest to Klingbeil, which the board would then review.

The person would then be up for election at the next regular school board election in November 2018.
