Zipperer Quits CdA School Board

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/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: The resignation comes fast on the heels of the appointment of James Purtee to the Coeur d'Alene School Board by Kootenai County commissioners. How will this resignation affect the School Board?
