Rick Valley will not seek a third term on the Decorah School Board.

Valley is completing his seventh year on the Board. School board elections are in September and Valley said he is making his announcement now to encourage other members of the District to run for the position.

Last year, the Board chose to make all Board positions at-large positions, so anyone living in the District who is 18 or older and not employed full-time by the District can run for the Board.

See Thursday's Decorah Journal for a letter to the editor from Valley.
