SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT from the RMAE BOARD of DIRECTORS

Seeking Election Subcommittee Volunteer

The RMAE Board of Directors is convening a 3-person Election Subcommittee – consisting of one parent, one teacher/staff member, and the Director – in order to conduct an election to fill three Board seats being vacated at the end of this school year.

Accordingly, we are seeking one parent volunteer to participate on the Election Subcommittee along with a teacher/staff member and Dr. Stueven.  Duties for the role as part of the subcommittee are very basic and include: a) receiving and publishing the list of interested candidates, b) arranging and overseeing a public meeting for candidates to speak and be interviewed by the public/parents, and c) overseeing the distribution & collection of ballots and tallying the votes.

Please contact Dr. Stueven (gstueven@rmae.org or 303.670.1070) at your soonest convenience if you are interested in serving on the Election Subcommittee.  Thank you in advance for your interest in volunteering to serve on this subcommittee.

Seeking Interested Board Candidates

The RMAE Board of Directors is also accepting applications from interested candidates to fill the three Board seats being vacated at the end of this school year.  Each seat will be for a three year term (through 2019-20), pursuant to RMAE Bylaws as recently amended by the Board.

Parents wishing to be candidates for election to the RMAE Board should submit a brief letter of interest with an abbreviated resume to election@rmae.org no later than April 28, 2017.

Resignation from RMAE BoD

It is with regret to inform the RMAE community, teachers, and staff of the resignation of Kyle Stults from his responsibilities as as President and member of the RMAE Board of Directors.  His resignation will be officially accepted at the next regular meeting of the BoD on May 11. Once officially accepted, his letter of resignation will be made available.

At the May meeting a current member of the BoD will be appointed and will serve as President until the July meeting. Until then the Vice President, Amy Broxterman, will serve as Acting President. The vacancy created by Kyle’s resignation will not be filled until the elections.  Kyle’s seat had already been announced at last night’s meeting as one of the three seats open for May election.

Kyle has served this community and school with steadfast dedication and commitment to do what was best to meet the mission of RMAE, the educational interests of the students, and the long term well-being of the school. He is to be commended for his steadfastness to serve under some extraordinarily difficult circumstances these past seven months.

Thank you, Kyle.
