A member of the Central York school board resigned from her position Monday night, just months after being elected to the post.

Board president Michael Wagner said he received an email about 4 p.m. Monday from member Anne Kahlbaugh, giving her resignation effective immediately.

Kahlbaugh was not present at the meeting, and Wagner did not give a reason for her resignation.

Board member Timothy Bieber said after the meeting he was "surprised" to hear Kahlbaugh had resigned from the board.

"It was new to me tonight," he said.

Board member Robert Weikert said Kahlbaugh's gifts supported the board in her short tenure.

"Anne had a lot to give to this board," Weikert said. "I'm disappointed to see her leave."

Weikert added he did not always agree with Kahlbaugh on board matters, but respected her opinion.

In the four months Kahlbaugh served on the board, she consistently made reference to slimming down the district's budget, often asking questions about how the board could get additional feedback from district residents and school members about how to reduce costs efficiently.

Wagner said the board is required to appoint a person to fill the vacant seat within 30 days. Interested persons must be at least 18 years of age and live in the school district, he said.

Other information on applying for the position and the process involved will be posting on the district's website, www.cysd.k12.pa.us, in the following days, Wagner said.


Kahlbaugh was elected to the school board in November and served since taking her seat on the board in December.
