  Contra Costa County Board of Education Vacancy Appointment - Applications Due April 28
April 10, 2014

County Board of Education Seeks Applicants to Fill Board Vacancy

The Contra Costa County Board of Education voted at its March 19, 2014 meeting to fill the Board vacancy in Trustee Area Two created by the unexpected death of Ellen Elster through an appointment rather than an election.  Trustee Area Two consists of Crockett, Hercules, Lafayette, Moraga, Orinda, Port Costa, Rodeo, and parts of Alamo, Concord, Martinez, Pacheco, Pinole, Pleasant Hill, Richmond, and Walnut Creek.

The California State Education Code states that within 60 days of a vacancy, the County Board shall either fill the vacancy by provisional appointment or order an election.  In the event that the Board fails to make a new appointment or order an election, the County Superintendent shall call for the election. 

Persons interested in applying for the appointment should contact Karen Sakata, Deputy Superintendent at (925) 942-3407 for an application packet.  (Employees of the Contra Costa County Superintendent of Schools or by a school district are not eligible to apply.) 

Provisional Appointment

The period for submitting an application is from March 20, 2014 through 5:00 p.m. on April 28, 2014.  Each applicant’s residency in Trustee Area Two will be verified.  Public session interviews by the County Board will be scheduled for May 7, 2014.

The County Board plans to make its provisional appointment on May 7, 2014.

The person appointed as Trustee will serve until November 2014.
