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.
