The Governing Board of the Dixon Unified School District took action at its meeting last night to open an application window for any individuals interested in filling the current board member vacancy. The Board also established a meeting date to interview applicants for the seat and make the provisional appointment.
The vacancy on the Board was created by the resignation of Andy Bloom in March. Whomever the Board appoints to the position will serve until Dec. 8. The remaining two years of Mr. Bloom’s term will be added to the ballot for November 2016. The person appointed to the seat now is eligible to run for that seat or either of the two seats with expiring terms already on the November ballot.
The application window runs from through 4 p.m. April 18. Applicants must complete a form and submit a written statement of no more than 500 words explaining why they want to serve on the Governing Board.
