The Shasta County Board of Education is seeking a candidate to fill a vacancy in Area 1 as a result of a resignation. The candidate appointed will serve until December 11, 2020 and may file for candidacy for the November 2020 election if they are interested in continuing to serve on the Board.
Any registered voter who resides in Area 1 which consists of the Enterprise, Grant, Redding, and Shasta Union Elementary School Districts is eligible to apply to this seven member board. Pursuant to Education Code 1006(a) the county superintendent of schools, members of their staff, or any employee of a school district are not eligible to serve as a county board member, therefore, if they applied and were appointed to the Shasta County Board of Education they would have to resign from their position prior to being sworn-in. This would also apply to any district governing board member.
Regular meetings of the Shasta County Board of Education are typically scheduled for the second Wednesday of the month (except June and December) at 1:30 p.m. The June meeting is held on the fourth Wednesday to allow time for budget preparation and the December meeting is held on the third Wednesday to meet Education Code requirements. It is occasionally necessary to call Special Meetings or Study Sessions of the Board outside the Regular meeting schedule. The Shasta County Board of Education also serves as the Shasta County Committee on School District Organization.
Applications are due no later than 4:00 p.m. on March 30, 2020 and can be obtained by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org, calling (530) 225-0227, or picked up at:
