The Vallejo City Unified School District Board of Education will receive an update on the application process Wednesday night to fill a vacancy on the board.
The vacancy occurred when Richard Porter opted not to accept the position after being elected during the fall contest.
Porter — who filed candidacy papers in August — suspended his campaign in early September to teach. Despite halting his campaign, more than 7,000 Vallejo voters decided to elect him, placing him second out of three available seats.
Porter teaches mathematics and science at the Mare Island Health & Fitness Academy.
Due to state law, Porter can’t serve on the board of education and teach in the district at the same time.
