Scott Benefield, president of the Jeffco school board, is resigning effective June 30.
"I'm resigning for personal reasons," Benefield said in a June 20 interview. "There's things going on in my family, and with the board work, it was the right thing to do. I enjoyed my time working on the school board and feel we've made a lot of progress and done a lot of good things."
Benefield was elected to the school board in 2005, representing the northern parts of the county, including portions of Arvada, Standley Lake and Westminster.
