Board member Michael Snyder, who has served as a Central York board member for nearly eight years, officially resigned earlier this month.

The district opened the application process to the public on Tuesday, and Board President Eric Wolfgang discussed the timeline for selecting a new board member — they are required to fill the seat vacated by Snyder within 30 days.

Those interested in filling the open seat are required to complete several forms for the application process, including a candidate profile and a statement of financial interests, and must submit them to the board's secretary/business manager, Brent Kessler, by March 7.

After reviewing the applications, the board will narrow down the candidate pool to the top seven applicants, who will then be interviewed in a public forum on March 16 at the district's education service center, Wolfgang said.

Current board members will discuss the top candidates at their upcoming meeting on March 21 and then put it to vote, he said.

To download the forms required to apply, visit Central York School District's website. Those with additional questions or concerns may email Kessler at bkessler@cysd.k12.pa.us.

Completed forms may be dropped off or mailed to the Education Service center at 775 Marion Road, York, PA 17406 or emailed to Kessler.
