Zone 4 Vacancy Filled
The Board conducted an interview process between Brad Ehrlich and myself to fill the vacancy in Zone 4, and eventually I was selected to fill the slot.
I've known Brad for a while, and continue to be impressed by his dedication to the District and the patrons of Zone 4. The Board highlighted Brad's qualifications and stressed how difficult the decision was. For my part, I think Zone 4 was in good hands no matter what they decided, but obviously am humbled and honored that I was selected for the seat. Swearing in takes place on June 13.
So this leads to an obvious question: "will WAPA continue?" And although I will step away from day-to-day duties, the answer is a definitive *yes*.
The West Ada Parents Association is far more than any one person. It's a movement. And as I've always said, the only reason that WAPA has any influence is because of you. WAPA continues to have incredible engagement among its members, and that's the reason it flourishes even though the underlying reasons for its inception have long been resolved.
Our mission is to serve as a community of well-informed citizens who support educational excellence and work in partnership with the school community to achieve quality educational results for all students. That will continue.
However, we will be looking for new leaders to step up and help guide WAPA during its evolution. If you'd like to participate more actively — in any form — then please reach out to me at email@example.com, or click the button below.
