Loudoun School Board Seeks Candidates for Leesburg Vacancy

The School Board is accepting applicants for candidates to fill the Leesburg District seat that was left vacant after Beth Barts’ resignation.

Applicant must submit a resume, a statement of interest, a sworn and notarized statement of residence in the district, and any addition information the candidate wishes to be considered, by noon on Nov. 17 to the Clerk of the School Board.

There will be a public hearing on Dec. 6 at 5p.m. at the district administrative offices, and the members of the community will be permitted to deliver public comments to the board.

The board recently went through the same process, appointing Andrew Hoyler to the Broad Run seat that was left vacant after the passing of Leslee King.

The candidate that the board appoints to fill the vacancy will serve until a special election is held for both the Leesburg and Broad Run seats on Nov. 2, 2022. The winners of the special election will serve until the end of the original seat holder’s term, in November 2023.

Interested candidates must submit their materials to Shari Byrne, Clerk of the School Board, by email at shari.byrne@lcps.org, or by mail at LCPS Administrative Offices, 21000 Education Court, Ashburn, Virginia 20148.

    Not Tom Marshall again. We need new perspectives.

    Anyone who promises to ignore parents, promise to formulate policies based on a few at the expense of the many and support every ridiculous thing that comes out of Zeigler’s, that candidate should slamdunk.

    Unfortunately, Loudoun just went through a similar process due to the untimely death of Leslee King. But Beth Barts was hounded out of office. Now her replacement must be selected. And it must be done with the greatest care. I hope someone in tune with Ms. Barts’ philosophy is selected. To do otherwise would be sacrilegious. I look forward to reviewing the resumes of the candidates. The more the merrier!

    Which philosophy is that..
    Compiling an enemies list of Loudouners with whom she disagreed?
    Or maybe covering up a sexual assault?
    Or was it her code of conduct violations?

    I don’t think “sacrilegious” means what you think it means. There is nothing sacred about a disgraced school board member.

    Good grief.

    All school board members being recalled have to recuse themselves from the selection committee anything less is sacrilegious.

    The problem with the selection process is the school board gets to select the new person thus perpetuating the problem with our schools. Clearly the citizens of Loudoun deserve better representation on the school board that will represent them and their ideas. If we are going to fix our schools we need a new school board. Ms, Barts was only part of the problem we need and antire new school board to make our schools the best.
