Richmond School seeks trustee applicants

Due to the upcoming term expiration of one member of the Board of Trustees of the Richmond Elementary School District, as well as the insufficiency of candidates for the Nov. 3, 2020, governing board election, the board voted at its Nov. 12 meeting to call for a provisional appointment to fill the vacated seat. Community members wishing to be considered for a provisional appointment must:

  1. Be a resident of the Richmond Elementary School District.
  2. Complete a questionnaire, which may be obtained by contacting Jeanette Goni at the Richmond Elementary School District Office, 700-585 Richmond Road, East, Susanville, California, 257-2338.

Completed questionnaires must be submitted to the Richmond Elementary School District Office no later than 3 p.m. Dec. 8, 2020.

Applications from candidates meeting the above qualifications will be reviewed by the Richmond Elementary School District Board of Trustees, and the Board may fill the vacancy at the Dec. 15, 2020, board meeting.

Unless a petition calling for a special election, containing a sufficient number of signatures, is filed in the Lassen County Office of Education within 30 days following a provisional appointment, the appointment shall become effective.

The appointee shall hold office until the next regularly-scheduled board member election, which will be in November 2022.
