Douglas County School Board member Neil Freitas resigned from his post Tuesday night.

Freitas was first elected to the position in 2012.

Freitas is moving out of the area he represents.

Freitas is a retired teacher, guidance counselor and administrator who worked both in Douglas and Lyon counties.

The Board will seek applicants and appoint a person to fill the vacancy until the next general election in 2018, Superintendent Teri White said. At that point, the seat will be up for election.
