Application letters from candidates meeting the above qualifications will be reviewed by the Susanville School District Board of Trustees, and the board may fill the vacancy at the Sept. 21, 2022, meeting of the board.  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 2024.
