CLINTON TOWNSHIP — Board Treasurer Jeffrey DiPascale last week submitted his letter of resignation from the L’Anse Creuse Public Schools Board of Education. His resignation became effective April 30.

DiPascale informed Board President Kenneth Hoover earlier this year that a recent career change was making it difficult for him to concentrate fully on his duties with the board.

After much effort and careful consideration, DiPascale said he found it in the best interest of L’Anse Creuse students, staff and community to step down.

“For the last four years, it has been a privilege to serve the students, the staff  and the community as an elected member of the L’Anse Creuse Board of Education,” said DiPascale in a prepared statement. “This position has given me the opportunity to help improve the quality of service to our students, while maintaining a safe and enjoyable working environment for our staff. I wish the district the best of luck in the future, and they will forever remain in my thoughts.”

DiPascale served on the board since 2009, and during that time, he served on myriad committees including finance, planning and policy, parent advisory, and contracts.

“Jeff has been a tremendous asset to this district, and we will miss his counsel and support,” said L’Anse Creuse Superintendent Jackie Johnston. “We wish him good luck in his future endeavors.”

The board has until May 30 to find a viable candidate to fill the now vacant seat that expires Dec. 31, 2014.

The district will soon be posting an announcement on how to apply.

The L’Anse Creuse Board of Education meets monthly at the Harry L. Wheeler Community Center and Administrative Offices at 24076 F.V. Pankow Boulevard in Clinton Township. A list of board meeting dates and times can be found at www.lc-ps.org.
