Cd'A school trustee resigns

Diane Zipperer

The Press has learned that Coeur d'Alene School Trustee Diane Zipperer has resigned from the board effective immediately.

For the first time in months, the five-member board was full following Thursday's appointment of Jim Purtee to fill the long-vacant Zone 1 seat.

The board had operated with four members since February when a district judge invalidated the appointment of Wanda Quinn.

Following an interview process, the Kootenai County Board of Commissioners appointed Purtee, a Coeur d'Alene businessman, to join Tom Hamilton, Terri Seymour, Sid Fredrickson and Zipperer on the board.

Following Idaho code, the commissioners were tasked with selecting a school trustee to appoint because the Zone 1 seat was vacant for more than 120 days.

Zipperer was appointed to Zone 4 seat on the board in July 2004 and elected to a three-year term in 2005, and again in 2008.

The trustees have 30 days to declare a vacancy on the board.
