Silver Lake-Salem Jt. #1 School Dist. (Riverview School) seeking applicants to fill vacant board seat

The Silver Lake-Salem Jt. #1 School District is seeking applicants interested in filling a vacant School Board seat.

The vacancy was created by the resignation of longtime board member Mary Vozel, which was accepted by the rest of the board Monday.

Vozel gave a planned move out of the district as the reason for her resignation, said Jon Schleusner, district administrator. Vozel had been on the board since 2005.

“She has been a positive, child-centered board member and we appreciate all her efforts on behalf of Riverview School and its students,” Schleusner said.
