Joan Johnson has resigned from her position on the District 49 Board of Education.
Johnson, who was elected in November of 2011, sent her announcement to the board around 4 p.m. According to board President Tammy Harold, the e-mail did not include any explanation about the decision.
The board will hold a special meeting at 4:30 p.m. Saturday to accept the resignation and will be declaring a vacancy at their meeting on April 25.
State law requires the position be filled within 60 days. The appointed director will complete Johnson’s two-year term and can then decide to run for office again in 2013.
“We appreciate Mrs. Johnson’s perspective on the board. It will be missed,” Harold said.
