Mossakowski to resign from Frisco ISD School Board

Frisco ISD School Board Vice President Dan Mossakowski, citing personal, family and business goals, will resign from his post, according to the district's communications office.



Mossakowski's term ends in 2016. The board has called a special meeting on June 2 to act on his resignation and discuss the process to fill his term until the next election in May 2015, at which time an individual would be elected to fill the remaining year of his term.



"This is something I have been considering for some time and have struggled with because of my love for this district and my dedication to the students," Mossakowski said in a district press release. "But it is now time for me to focus more attention on what is best for me and my family."



Mossakowski told the board and superintendent he has children who are, or plan to be, teachers and his service on the board prevents them from being able to be employed at Frisco ISD.



"This is a district teachers want to join to serve students and I have put my service before theirs until now," he said.



Mossakowski has served on the school board for 10 years and was first elected in 2004. He served as president for four years and vice president for two.
