The Millburn Board of Education accepted the resignation of board member Jean Pasternak at Monday night's meeting, school officials said Tuesday.
District Communications Coordinator Nancy Dries said Pasternak was resigning to focus on family and other personal reasons.
Pasternak, who has served on the board for the past two years, submitted her letter of resignation to the district's business administrator, Steven DiGeronimo, on Friday Feb. 7.
The school board will place an ad in the Item newspaper for interested residents to submit a letter to DiGeronimo.
Pasternak’s term expires in 2014.
