Earlier this year, two members of the Board of Trustees for Coeur d’Alene Public Schools stepped down. Chair Jennifer Brumley, who served Zone 4, and Trustee Tambra Pickford, who served Zone 3, left the board in early October.

According to Idaho law, Tambra Pickford’s position must be filled within 90 days by someone in Zone 3. Only a person qualified to appoint the position can do so. Morrisroe says he would like to see the application window for Pickford’s position through mid-November in order to get past the November election.
