Vacancy on the Kirkland School Board

posted May 16, 2018, 3:41 PM by Michelle Perey


                   Yavapai County School Superintendent Tim Carter has announced a vacancy on the Kirkland Elementary School District Governing Board, due to the resignation of Mrs. Cathi Cobey. In her letter of resignation, Mrs. Cobey did not give a specific reason, except to mention that since there were other willing and interested people in the community, it was time for her to retire. “Mrs. Cobey’s service to the school district is appreciated”, Carter said.

Because of the proximity of this vacancy to the filing deadline for the upcoming November Governing Board elections, Mr. Carter has determined that this vacancy will not be filled at this time.

          Mr. Carter said, “Due to the timeline that filling this vacancy would require, it is in the best interest of all involved to wait until the nomination / election process is concluded to make an appointment. The appointment, expected to be in mid November after the canvass of election, will be of the non-incumbent candidate who receives the highest number of votes from the voters.

If an eligible registered voter is interested in running for election to the Kirkland Elementary School District Governing Board, or if anyone has questions please contact:

Thursday- Kirkland Will Be OPEN!

posted Apr 25, 2018, 9:04 AM by Michelle Perey

Kirkland Parents and Families,

 As I am sure many of you are aware, the teachers in Arizona and Governor Ducey are currently battling the Arizona State Legislature over teacher pay and other school funding areas. Many schools and districts around the state and across the county are preparing for a teacher walk out on Thursday, April 26th.

At this time, Kirkland teachers and staff are NOT planning to participate in this walk-out.  Instead, they are encouraging students and families to support the state-wide effort by wearing Red for Ed!

The Kirkland Staff believe strongly in the cause of increased school funding but want to support this community by remaining open and serving its families.

Again, Kirkland School will be open and operating on a regular schedule with all events and activities as previously planned. As the political situation continues to evolve, please know that I will communicate any changes that might affect our school.

Image result for Red for EdThanks again for understanding and supporting your students in their education at Kirkland School.
