Seeking Applications for Board Member Vacancy

The Bonita Unified School District Board of Education is seeking applications from interested residents within the school district’s boundaries to serve as an appointed member of the Governing Board. A vacancy will occur due to the resignation of Board Member Jim Elliot who tendered his resignation October 6, 2017, effective December 6, 2017. Elliot was reelected to office in 2015, and his term was to run through 2019.  Due to the California Voter Participation Rights Act (SB 415), Governing Board Member elections were changed from odd years to even years, extending the terms of office of all current elected officeholders by one year. The person appointed to fill this vacancy will serve the remaining term of Elliot’s seat to December 2020.
