For the second time this year, the president of the Park City Board of Education has resigned.

In a letter dated Tuesday, school board president Julie Eihausen submitted her resignation to the board, saying her resignation as President would be effective at the end of the month. Doing so she says will allow the district’s business administrator the ability to send out checks until a new President is selected.

Eihausen says she will also be resigning as a member of the school board effective February 5th,  2018 which provides more than 4 months for the board to interview and appoint a new board member. Eihausen was elected to the school board in 2014. Her term will expire at the end of 2018.

This is very similar to what happened earlier this year when Phil Kaplan resigned as board President and then later resigned from the board all together. Kaplan says he needed to resign for personal reasons. He had just been elected to a four year term last November, after being appointed to the position to fill the unexpired term of a board member who had moved out of the district.   

Eihausen didn’t list any reasons for her departure in her letter, but did thank her constituents and the community for allowing her the opportunity to serve. She said she will miss the participation in the school district, something she has been a part of for the last 15 years.
