The Central York school board will hold a special meeting Monday, June 2, to fill a vacant seat created when Anne Kahlbaugh resigned last month.

The board officially accepted Kahlbaugh's resignation at its meeting earlier this month in a 6-1 vote.

Board member Michael Snyder said he believed Kahlbaugh's resignation was a sign of her frustration that her views were not respected by the board, and said he thought her opinions should have been valued instead of rejected.

As a sign of his disappointment over that, Snyder said he could not support her resignation.

Replacement: Following the vote, board president Michael Wagner said the board secretary, Brent Kessler, received emails from 19 people interested in filling the board seat. One person did not live in the district and another later withdrew, leaving 17 candidates.

Those candidates were asked to fill out a profile page for the existing board members to share a little bit about themselves, Wagner said. Those were due to Kessler by May 8, and 12 people submitted the forms.

Board members looked over those 12 profile forms and rated them so the top seven candidates were selected from that pool. Those were further narrowed to five candidates, who will be interviewed at a special meeting June 2. The meeting is set to begin at 6 p.m., according to board documents.

The board will nominate candidates at the June 9 planning meeting, and the person with the majority vote will be appointed to the seat, Wagner said.

Kahlbaugh resigned via email the afternoon of the board's meeting April 28.
