wheatland-school-busThe Wheatland J1 School District (Wheatland Center School) is seeking a resident to fill a vacancy on the school board after the resignation of a board member.

Mary Ochoa-Petersen announced her resignation as a member of the board of education and it was accepted at the March 23 board meeting. She had been a member of the board for eight years.
