CV school board seeks member

The Central Valley School District Board of Directors is seeking applicants to fill the seat left vacant by longtime board member Craig Holmes.

Holmes, 49, resigned Jan. 10 after serving nine years.

The vacant position represents District 2, situated in the western part of the 80-square-mile district. Residents interested in filling the seat must be a resident of that district, a registered voter and a United States citizen, said Melanie Rose, district spokeswoman.

School board members said they hope to appoint a new board member by Feb. 28, Rose said.

That member would serve until the next general election in November, at which time the position is up for election. The job is voluntary.

“We are looking forward to welcoming a new board member who shares our vision,” said Anne Long, board president. “As school board members, we must have a passion about quality education for every child.”

As of Thursday, two applications had been accepted, Rose said.

Application packets are available by visiting the Office of the Superintendent at the Central Valley School District’s Learning and Teaching Center, 19307 E. Cataldo Ave. The office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Applications will be accepted until 4 p.m. Friday.

For more information, call 228-5404.
