Following the general election on November 2 where there was not a candidate for director in District 5, and the resignation of Joel McBride at the November 9 board meeting, there are currently two open seats 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 5:00 p.m. on December 7, 2021. The school board will then interview prospective candidates on December 14, 2021 at a public meeting.
To be eligible for appointment, a candidate must be a registered elector of the school district, and for the District 5 seat must also be a resident of Director District 5.
School District maps can be found on the district’s website.
The appointees 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.
Any interested candidates are welcome to reach out with any questions to Kim LeTourneau at 719-530-5225.
