FAIRFIELD — The Solano County Board of Education is looking to fill a board vacancy for Trustee Area 3.
Existing representative John Galvan submitted his resignation during a board meeting Jan. 9.
Trustee Area 3 includes Benicia, Glen Cove, portions of south Fairfield, Travis Air Force Base and Collinsville. By law, a mid-term replacement must reside in the trustee area in place at the start of the departing board member’s term – in this case November 2009. New trustee area boundaries approved last year will be in effect after the upcoming November election.
The board voted during a special meeting to make a provisional appointment to fill the vacancy.
Any registered voter residing in the Trustee Area 3 boundaries is eligible to be a member of the County Board of Education except the county superintendent of schools, any member of the superintendent’s staff or any employee of a school district. For more information on Area 3 boundaries, call the Solano County Registrar of Voters office at 784-6675.
Duties of the board position include approval of the Solano County Office of Education’s annual budget, issuing temporary teaching certificates and hearing appeals on pupil expulsion, interdistrict attendance and charter schools.
Applications can be picked up 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. starting Friday in the county superintendent of schools’ office, 5100 Business Center Drive, Fairfield. Completed applications must be received by the superintendent’s office by 5 p.m. Feb. 15. Applications cannot be mailed or emailed and late submittals will not be accepted.
