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.

Dear Dolores,

I had the joy of conversation with Maryanne Gagen at Alamo Safeway recently. This past June, I washed dishes with Chris Kenber at a ACF Brunch function. These exceptional former SRVUSD Trustees should be the first people asked to fulfill Joan's term as Trustee.

As important, parents and our current and former SRVUSD students should simply take a moment to applaud Joan Buchanan's contribution to our schools.
