“Such work is best accomplished by those who will lead our district forward, with the space and opportunity to evaluate what’s been done and what needs to be done. Serving the Oakwood City Schools has been a privilege of a lifetime,” Duwel said. “I will always be grateful for the opportunity.”
Duwel was elected to the board in 2011. It was the first of three terms in which he was one of two candidates unopposed for a pair of seats, according to Montgomery County Board of Elections records.
Applications to fill the position will be considered from Oct. 3 at 8:30 a.m. through Oct. 14 at 4:30 p.m., the district said.
The board anticipates appointing a replacement before its meeting set for Jan. 9, 2023.
The board will accept written and signed letters of interest, which must be hand delivered to the district’s treasurer c/o Sandi Branham, officials said. Emails will not be accepted.
The board will review all eligible letters and may choose to interview, with the target date of completing the process by Nov. 4, according to the district.
Any procedural questions should be directed to John Wilson, board vice president, via email at email@example.com.
