Norristown Area School District Board Member Resigns

Dear NASD Community,

The Norristown Area School District Board of School Directors received Jamila Winder’s
resignation effective Tuesday, December 22, 2020. Director Winder will join the East
Norriton Township Board of Supervisors, where she will fill a vacancy on their board
previously held by Pennsylvania State Senator-Elect Amanda Cappelletti.

The Board of School Directors congratulates Jamila Winder on her recent appointment
and wish her the best of luck in her new position. She joined the NASD Board in
December of 2017 and immediately jumped into the role. Her background in Human
Resources made her a perfect fit on the district’s HR Committee. We also valued her
expertise with the implementation of the goals of our District’s Diversity and Cultural
Proficiency Plan. We appreciate her service to our community and look forward to
continuing this partnership in her new capacity.

The Norristown Area School District Board of School Directors will have 30 days from
December 22, 2020, to appoint a community member to fill the vacancy on the board.
Interested candidates should email a Letter of Interest and a resume or general
biographical information to Board Secretary Kathleen DiMaio at
by 5 pm on Friday, January 8, 2021. An interview process will follow with a
recommendation to be brought forward for a Special Meeting to be held at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, January 19, 2021, before our monthly Work Session.
