Following the resignation of At Large Director Jeannie Peters at the completion of the May school board meeting, there is currently an open seat on the Salida School Board.
Those interested in being considered for appointment to the board should submit a letter to school board secretary Kim LeTourneau at 627 Oak Street in Salida with a statement of interest and qualifications by 5:0 p.m. on July 5, 2022. The school board will then interview prospective candidates on July 12, 2022 at a public meeting.
To be eligible for appointment, a candidate must be a registered elector of the school district and must live within the boundaries of the school district. Those who have been convicted of committing a sexual offense against a child are not eligible to hold a position on the School Board.
The appointee will serve until the next regular school biennial election in November 2023, at which time an election will be held for a successor to fill the remainder of the unexpired term which ends in 2025.
Interested candidates are welcome to reach out with any questions to Kim LeTourneau at 719-530-5225.
