Auburn School District Director Ryan Van Quill Resigns

After almost six years of service as an Auburn School District board member, Ryan Van Quill resigned from the Auburn School Board on Monday. Van Quill represents director district 5 and has served on the board since 2014.

ASD Superintendent Alan Spicciati said, “Director Van Quill is a strong advocate for students with special needs and values career preparation as pathway. His passion and service on the board will be missed.”

Van Quill has been actively engaged in the community for two decades.  He served on two local non-profit boards, including the board for Children’s Therapy Center. He is general manager of Magnum Print Solutions in Seattle and Laser Image Plus in California. He and his wife DeDe have moved to California. All three of the Van Quill children graduated from Auburn Mountainview High School.

The ASD Board of Directors developed a timeline to fill the open board seat. Applications to be considered for the board position are due November 2. Interviews will be held via a Zoom public meeting November 10 and the new board member will be sworn-in November 23. 

Any community member who lives in Director District 5 may apply to be considered. District 5 includes the unincorporated area surrounding Lake View Elementary and Lea Hill north of SE 312th. A map of district 5 is on page 6 of the document linked here.

Application letters should be submitted to Laurie Bishop, ASD Board President, 915 4th ST NE and should include a brief resume of qualifications, background and reasons for wanting to serve on the board.
