“Dear Ms. Velez,

I am writing this letter to inform you of my resignation from my position on the board of ABC Middle School. As you may already know, my health has been in a state of decline in the last couple of years and I have missed many meetings due to hospitalizations. Because of this situation I feel that it is in the best interest of both myself and ABC Middle School if I step down from the board. I will relinquish all of my responsibilities and privileges as a board member effective August 15, 2014. I appreciate your patience and cooperation in this matter.

I regret any inconvenience that my resignation may cause to the school board, and will make all efforts during my last two weeks to help decrease any such inconvenience. Should you have any need to get in touch with me, my telephone number is (555)-555-5555 and my email address is [email] I hope to hear from you soon.

I have greatly enjoyed the cooperative experience of serving on the school board during my term and am thankful for your help and kindness along the way. I am honored to have worked in the capacity of improving the school and its functions for our children and grandchildren and am grateful for your understanding.

Yours sincerely,

Kurt Fellows

“September 1 2014

Gerald Nance

President Ulrich District School Board

100 Broadway Lane

London UK NW80QE

Dear Mr. Nance

Please let this letter serve as my official resignation from the Ulrich District School Board effective immediately. It is my opinion that the board no longer serves the best interests of the students and I cannot find my way to serving on a board where politics is more important than the education of our children.

Over the past several months it seems to me that certain members of the board are more interested in campaigning for their board seats than they are in developing worthwhile policies. The last budget debate was also a disgrace to the entire board that was broadcast to the entire area on television. I was never more embarrassed to be part of a school board than I was at that moment.

I do wish you and the board well but I fear that major changes are in order if the board is to truly do its job. If you need to contact me for more details or information in regards to my resignation please call me at 555-643-6533 or email me at I ask that you keep the students in mind as the board moves forward.

Sincerely Yours

William R. Gould”

Mark Belleville


ABC Group School Board

321 Fenton Pl.

Beach Town, NY 10013

Dear Mr. Belleville,

I regret to inform you that I will be resigning as Board Member of ABC Group Board. I will be able to continue serving until the end of our fiscal year, or until a replacement has been found.

The reason behind my resignation is that I have been offered a job opportunity in Capital City which will require my family to relocate. I am happy with how the company has progressed thus far and I’m sure that my replacement will be able to contribute to the continued growth of the organization.

The position I’ve held on the Board for the past three years has taught me more than I could have hoped. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to gain insight into the industry and for the guidance which has lead me to become a stronger leader.

I look forward to watching the company continue to progress in the years to come.

Yours Sincerely,

Ellen Donaldson”

Colleen Shute


JKL Middle School Board

555 Glasgow Pl.

Beverly Hills, CA 90210

Dear Ms. Shute,

It has been an honor to work alongside you on the JKL Middle School Board of Directors. You have been more than a capable leader and I have learned much about the decision making that goes into running a successful company. However, I feel that it would be best if I resigned from my position on the Board, effective October 1, 2017.

My commitments have become increasingly time-consuming and, over the past year, it has been difficult for me to manage many aspects of my personal life. I want you to know that my departure is not directly related to any specific person on the Board, but simply due to my need to make my extremely strenuous schedule slightly less demanding.

With my remaining time on the Board, I would be happy to assist in the effort of finding a replacement and training said replacement so that they are fully prepared come the time of my resignation. Please contact me with any questions or comments in that regard.

Thank you for the opportunity and give my regards to the other members.

Best wishes,

Rick Yorkdale”

Cindy Kennedy

Chairman of the Board

Cut Co School.

5555 Stuart Ave.

Leicester, MA 01524

Dear Mrs. Kennedy,

This letter is meant to serve as an official notice of my resignation from my position on the Board of Cut Co School, effective immediately.

I feel that I lack the commitment and devotion necessary to run a company of this caliber. I believe that stepping down from my position will allow someone with a stronger passion for the industry to excel where I have failed. While I wish my time with Cut Co School. was more prosperous, I remain proud of the progress that we have made.

If you would like assistance in finding a suitable candidate to fill my position, feel free to contact me anytime.
