District plans for new school board member
The San Ramon Valley Unified School District board will appoint a replacement rather than holding a costly election for longtime board member Joan Buchanan; she was elected to the State Assembly and resigned from the school board effective Nov. 30.
District staff will recommend a process to the board, such as interviews, nominations by board members and how to apply for the office. School Superintendent Steven Enoch took preliminary actions such as contacting other districts. The term expires in 2010.
The board must make the appointment by Jan. 29 or the county superintendent of education will call for an election.
