Fairview School Board Member resigns | Schools
Fairview Park City School District Board of Education Member Dennis Rehor submitted his letter of resignation from the board, effective immediately.
In Rehor's letter, he states, "As most in public service know, it is difficult to balance the demands of family versus that service, something I have been doing since the wealth of time in my role with the Gemini Project from its inception in 2003. Events of the past several months, including the passing of my father last fall, have made that task even more difficult. I sincerely hope that the residents of Fairview Park respect and appreciate my decision and the reasons behind it in that regard."
Rehor was elected as a school board member in November 2005. In his time with the district, he was the FPCS Board President in 2008-09 and Vice President in 2007, and has served on several committees including, but not limited to: Alumni Relations, Extracurricular and Co-curricular Activities, and Finance committees.
"Dennis has truly been a change agent in the Fairview Park City Schools," said Shucofsky in response to Rehor's resignation. "From his work on the Gemini Committee and his years of service as vice president and president of the school board, to the district's recent attainment of an Excellent school district rating from the Ohio Department of Education and an upgraded bond rating from Moody's Investment Service, Dennis has always been a vital member of the Fairview Park Schools."
"It was a pleasure to work with Dennis," said FPCS Superintendent Brion Deitsch. "His commitment and service on the board have been an asset for our students and the community of Fairview Park."
According to the Ohio School Boards Association, people serving on school boards in Ohio must be district residents and registered voters. If they wish to continue serving on the school board, they will stand for election in the next general election.
