Garry Weber will step down on July 31 after serving on the Springfield public schools board for 15 years. Weber says he feels it’s time to step down from the position and open it to a parent of a current student in the school system.
The Springfield board of education is now seeking someone to fill the position. Applicants do not need to live in a certain area of Springfield to qualify. The board will appoint a new member to serve out the remainder of the current term which expires June 2015.
