Natalie Sheppard is leaving the Rochester Board of Education to join the Monroe County Board of Elections.
Board President Van White said Sheppard informed the board of her decision on Thursday. She joins the Board of Elections as a deputy to new Democratic Commissioner Jackie Ortiz. White expects a resignation letter from Sheppard sometime Friday.
Sheppard’s resignation leaves an opening on the school board that White said needs to be filled in about a month.
