Vacaville Unified leaders on Thursday decided to start taking applications from the public and eventually appoint someone to fill a vacancy on the governing board. They also agreed to re-open the Sierra Vista site as a K-8 school, with classes beginning in August 2016.
The application process to fill the vacancy, created when Jeremy Jeffreys resigned his post, started Friday and ends at 5 p.m. Sept. 30. A committee of at least two trustees will review the applications later that day.
The six board members then may select a candidate, following public interviews, during the board’s regularly scheduled meeting on Oct. 1.
District staff members posted the application forms on the district website, www.vacavilleusd.org. The forms also are available at district offices, 401 Nut Tree Road, call 453-6100.
