In an email sent to media Tuesday, Rob Corrigan commented on his recent resignation from the Sisters School Board, citing personal reasons and his inability to effectively help improve the schools due to “the current atmosphere and level of distraction.”

Following are his comments:

”This note is to let you know that last Friday afternoon (Jan 19), I advised the superintendent and members of the board of my resignation from my position (Seat #2) as a Director on the Sisters School Board of Education, effective that day.

My family and I reached this decision due to the fact that my voluntary participation on the school board has interfered more than we can tolerate with my ability to be an effective father and husband and to earn a living.  At the same time, I find that the current atmosphere and level of distraction make it impossible for me to effectively help improve our schools.

I have the utmost respect for my fellow board members, and have enjoyed working with and getting to know each of them.  They are a remarkable group of individuals, and I appreciate their incredible dedication and service to the community.  I wish the board and the many wonderful professionals who’ve made a career of serving the children of this community the very best success with their on-going efforts to improve the Sisters school district.

School board elections will be held on May 15.  The Sisters community is blessed with a great many talented, involved and generous individuals, any number of whom would make excellent board members.  I hope that my successor and former colleagues on the board will also find a level of support in the community that their important service deserves.”
