The Long Beach Unified School District Board of Education decided at its regular meeting on Feb. 7 that it will fill a vacancy on the board by appointment. An application, screening and interview process will be used to fill the position.
The District 5 seat on the five-member board became vacant Jan. 25 when the board’s vice president, David Barton, resigned due to health concerns.
The school board will make the appointment during a special board meeting unofficially scheduled for March 23, 2012. Once appointed, the new board member will complete the remainder of the District 5 term, which expires in July 2014.
Residents of District 5 who are interested in being considered for this appointment must complete and submit an application to Ruth Ashley, assistant superintendent of Human Resource Services, 1515 Hughes Way, Long Beach, CA, 90810.
The application is available as of Feb. 14, or upon request by contacting Human Resource Services at (562) 997-8257.
Applications must be received in the Human Resource Services office no later than 4 p.m. Friday, March 2.
