VACAVILLE — Two applicants vying for the empty Vacaville School District governing board seat left by Jerry Eaton’s resignation in July will be vetted for the position at Thursday’s school board meeting.
Michael Stover and Nolan Sullivan will each give a three-minute personal statement with interviews after the statements.
Upon applying for the position, each potential candidate was required to fill out an application form and answer the question, “Why are you passionate to serve on the Vacaville Unified School District governing board?”
Stover’s application indicated that he is an assistant court executive officer for Placer County Superior Court, is a father of three children who attend Vacaville schools and is in his second term serving on the Measure V Citizen’s Oversight Committee.
“I have an innate interest in ensuring that the Vacaville Unified School District governing board is able to provide a rigorous and relevant standards-based instructional program through the partnering of the students, staff, families and community at large,” he wrote, in part, to answer the required question.
Sullivan, a Yolo County program manager, is a product of the Vacaville school district and has children in the district as well. He’s the current president of the Vacaville Public Education Foundation.
“I represent families with young children entering the school system . . . . I want and will display leadership that works with the community and district staff to forge partnerships between local industry, educational institutions and curriculum to create world-class student learning opportunities,” he wrote.
The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at the Educational Services Center, 401 Nut Tree Road.
