Submitted by Denair Unified School District:
Community members interested in filling a vacancy on the Denair Unified School District board are encouraged to attend a meeting tonight to learn more about the position.
The question-and-answer session begins at 7 p.m. at the district office. Community members who live within the district’s boundaries and are registered are eligible to apply.
Applications are available at the district’s office and also can be downloaded off the district’s website. Applications will be accepted Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. until Aug. 19.
The vacancy was created when longtime board member John Plett resigned Aug. 9, citing a need “to focus on my health.”
The remaining four trustees decided they will appoint Plett’s replacement rather than hold a costly special election. His term ends in November 2020.
On Aug. 29, Trustees Kathi Dunham-Filson, Regina Gomes, Ray Prock Jr. and Crystal Sousa will hold a special board meeting at 7 p.m. to interview all the applicants. After discussion, trustees will vote that night to choose Plett’s successor. The new trustee will be sworn it at the Sept. 12 board meeting.
Those with questions about the process should call Daisy Swearingen, executive assistant to superintendent and board, at (209) 632-7514, ext. 1202.
