Board to Interview Applicants to Vacant Seat on October 12
Posted 10/2/21

The deadline for submitting an application to be appointed to the vacant Board of Education seat was 5 pm on October 1. Seven people applied for the position.

What happens next

On October 6, the candidates’ applications will be posted to the agenda of the October 12 meeting, as well as our Board Vacancy web page.

At the October 12 meeting:

  • Candidates will give a three-minute opening statement (names will be drawn randomly to determine the order).
  • Each of the four seated Board of Education members and three student Board Members will have an opportunity to interview each candidate for three minutes.
  • At the close of the final round of questions, the Board President will entertain motions from the Board to appoint a candidate.
  • Once that motion is seconded, the Board will discuss and then vote on the candidate.
  • If there is no second, that candidate will not be considered.
  • In the event that a majority of the board does not approve any candidate, board members will be able to move to reconsider a previous motion for a candidate.

A provisional appointment will be made at either the October 12 meeting or the October 26 meeting. 

We thank these candidates for stepping forward to serve the students, families, and staff of Alameda Unified. Their interest and time are deeply appreciated.
