School board appoints teacher to vacant seat – The Reporter

By Jessica Rogness

Travis Unified School District trustees appointed local teacher Jamilah Whiteside to fill a vacant seat on its governing board during a special meeting Tuesday evening.

Whiteside, who teaches history at Rodriguez High School in the Fairfield-Suisun school district, will now serve as Trustee for Area 1 in the Travis Unified district, which covers Travis Air Force Base, until the end of the term on Dec. 7, 2018, as if she were elected to the post.

A special election was going to be held in March for the open position, but no candidates filed. California Education Code allows that in the case of insufficient nominees in a school district election, the school board makes appointments. The board had through Monday, March 2, to appoint someone to fill the vacancy.
