Application for Board vacancy
Submitted By Rick La Plante
Applications are now available for eligible New Haven Unified School District residents interested in being considered for a provisional appointment to fill an upcoming vacancy on the Board of Education.
President Michelle Matthews recently outlined the procedure to be followed to replace member Kevin Harper, who has resigned his position, effective at the end of the calendar year, because he is moving out of the District.
The application will be posted on the District website (www.nhusd.k12.ca.us). Applicants are to fill out the document electronically and print and forward a copy to the District, to the attention of Senior Executive Assistant Lori Valdes. Completed applications can be faxed to (510) 471-7108 or mailed to 34200 Alvarado-Niles Rd., Union City, 94587.
Applications are due by 5 p.m. Thursday, November 17. No late applications will be accepted.
Applications will be reviewed to confirm eligibility, and eligible candidates will be announced. Interviews in front of the full Board are scheduled to take place Tuesday, November 29. After the Board makes its decision, the successful applicant will be seated in January, after Mr. Harper's resignation takes effect December 31.
The appointment will be effective until after the November 2012 election, when Mr. Harper's term would have expired. The seat will be one of three on the November 2012 ballot.
