"The Walled Lake School District has helped to make me who I am today."
In accord with district policies, the board must appoint a new member in 30 days.
- Interested individuals must be a district resident and be 18-years or older.
- The term of the appointment is until Dec. 31, 2014.
- Applications are due Jan. 21 by 4 p.m.

Officially, the Board of Education is responsible for adopting a balanced budget annually, hiring and evaluating the Superintendent and more. They serve for a six-year term attending monthly meetings and many District events.
"(Board members) give tirelessly of their time and energy to Walled Lake Consolidated School District," said Superintendent Kenneth Gutman. "Mostly, they care about our students, staff, community and everyone we serve."
