Redmond School District seeks new board member after chairman resigns


Redmond School Board chairman Tim Carpenter announced his resignation Wednesday, having served two six-year stints on the panel.

“After 40-plus years in the Redmond community and 12 years on the board, it’s tough to walk away, but it’s great to see the changes that have come along in the community and to see what the district is doing,” said Carpenter, a Redmond High School graduate. “Continue on with the good work, and thank you all.”

Board members noted Carpenter’s role as a mentor on the board and his dedication to Redmond students’ success.

“I want to thank Tim for his service, for both terms on the board and for both bonds that passed under your leadership,” board member Rick Bailey said at the meeting. “You’ve done great things for the community.”

Vice-Chairman Shawn Hartfield will take over as board chairman.

As a result of Carpenter’s resignation, the Redmond School District Board of Directors is seeking qualified people to apply for Position #4.

The board consists of five members elected at large.

Those interested must be registered voters in the district and must have been residents within the district for one year immediately preceding the appointment.
