Dear Community Members:


I hope you have the chance to enjoy this beautiful spring afternoon! I have a couple of notes for you.




Last night the Board acted to accept the resignation from Mr. Bob Kuhlman. Bob has been on the Board for the last 15 plus years, and his impact was significant. His steady, pragmatic leadership helped steer the district on a course where have prospered academically and financially. It is hard for me personally to put into words my thanks for what he meant to Eastwood. He stood tall when the challenges were the greatest and allowed others to enjoy the spotlight during the best of days. He will be missed.


Bob was not planning to seek re-election this fall, and his resignation requires that the Board find a replacement. The Board is required to appoint a new member no sooner than 10 days from the resignation and no later than 30 days from that date. Applicants must live within the Eastwood School District, and they will serve the remainder of Mr. Kuhlman’s term which ends December 31, 2019. If they wish to serve longer, they will have to run for a full term this November.


Any individual wishing to be considered should submit a letter of interest and a resume to:
