The Springfield Local School District's Board of Education is seeking a new member following the Oct. 5 resignation of Terry Robinson, who accepted the position of Springfield Township's zoning investigator.

State guidelines prevent an individual from serving simultaneously as an elected member of the school board while being employed as a zoning investigator in the same township.

Springfield Local School District is now accepting letters of interest for this open Board of Education seat. To be considered, those interested in filling the vacancy through Dec. 31, 2019, should

submit a resume and letter of interest to Superintendent Charles Sincere via email at or at the Administration Building, 2410 Massillon Road.

Letters of interest must be submitted by 3 p.m. Oct. 19. According to Ohio law, individuals serving on Ohio school boards must be at least 18 years old, district residents, and registered voters.

The vacancy will be filled at the Oct. 30 Board of Education meeting at Schrop Intermediate School, 2215 Pickle Road.

Springfield Local School District serves 2,200 students in four buildings in Springfield Township and the village of Lakemore.
