SPS Board Director Paul Schneider resigns

SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Public Schools Board Director Paul Schneider resigned his position on the board Tuesday.

“There is no doubt that this decision was difficult for Paul to make,” said School Board President Deana Brower. “His passion for education and what is best for the classrooms of our district has been evident over the past 18 months of his service.”

The school board will meet in early August to determine a timeline and next steps in the public process to fill Director Schneider's seat on the five-member board.

Schneider is accused of drunk driving in June. Police believe he clipped a bicyclist and fled the scene, then hit two street signs before crashing his car into a power pole.
