L’Anse Creuse Public Schools Board of Education unanimously voted Monday night to appoint Charles Eslinger, filling a vacancy left by Treasurer Jeffrey DiPascale, according to the district. The decision comes after the school board interviewed five candidates for the position that expires Dec. 31, 2014. “All five candidates were remarkable people and would have brought something unique and special to the board,” Board President Kenneth Hoover said in a prepared statement. “However, in the end, Mr. Eslinger’s previous experience is instrumental to the hard work that lies ahead.” Eslinger was a L'Anse Creuse board member from November 2007 to December 2012.

Candidates will be able to apply for the vacancy in the near future.
L'Anse Creuse Public School Board Treasurer Jeffrey DiPascale plans to resign April 30, according to the district. The announcement comes after DiPascale, who's been on the board since 2009, informed the board president earlier this year that a recent career change led to challenges keeping board position. He ultimately decided stepping down was in the best interest of the school community because he couldn't dedicate the attention it deserves. “For the last four years, it has been a privilege to serve the students, the staff, and the community as an elected member of the L’Anse Creuse Board of Education,” DiPascale said in a prepared statement. “This position has given me the opportunity to help improve the quality of service to our …
