FAIRFIELD — Filing for three seats on the Fairfield-Suisun School District board of trustees begins Monday and ends Aug. 8, the Solano County Registrar of Voters office says.
No filing fee is required for the school board seats that pay $400 a month and provide the same benefits offered to school district management employees.
Seats representing trustee areas 7, 5 and 4 are up for election Nov. 4.
Trustee Area 7 includes Clay Bank Road and part of Air Base Parkway. Area 5 includes Sunset Avenue and East Kentucky Street. Texas Street and Travis Boulevard are part of Area 4.
Residents can go to www.solanocounty.com/depts/rov/ and type in their address to determine the trustee area where they reside or call the registrar’s office at 784-6675.
Candidates must be 18 years old, a resident of the trustee area they seek to represent, a registered voter and not employed by the Fairfield-Suisun district, according to the school district website.
“As a collective, the board is responsible for the general control and direction of education in the district,” the website states in part.
The Nov. 4 election is the first for the school board that’s based on specified trustee areas. The new method replaces at-large elections. Candidates must now live in the area they seek to represent.
