SUNDERLAND >>The Sunderland School Board is looking to appoint a member of the community to the Sunderland School Board. This member will be filling a vacancy until the next election in 2017.

We are looking for a resident of Sunderland that has an interest in ensuring the students in Sunderland have access to quality education at a cost which is reasonable to the taxpayers. Due to the legislative passage of ACT 46, the Sunderland School Board has a number of decisions to make in the coming months, outside of our normal charge. Those interested in contributing their time during this phase should contact Board Chair Melanie Virgilio ( with a letter of interest as soon as possible. The school board's next meeting is in August, but would like to fill this position before then if possible.
