A retired Vacaville Deputy Fire Chief who has worked and raised his family in Vacaville for three decades is the newest addition to the Vacaville Unified School District Board of Trustees.
After a lengthy interview process during the board’s Thursday night meeting in the Educational Services Center, John Jansen was selected as the seventh trustee by the board. Besides earning the support from the board, Jansen was endorsed by the Vacaville Teachers’ Association (VTA) prior to Thursday’s meeting.
During his statement to the board on Thursday, Jansen said he has been volunteering since the beginning of his first son’s education at Cooper Elementary School.
