School Board Vacancy and Provisional Appointment
The District has a new vacancy on the School Board. Trustee Brooks Nguyen has submitted a resignation from her board position, effective Dec. 13, 2023. MCSD is seeking a qualified applicant to fill the vacancy created by her resignation for the time remaining on her term until the next regularly scheduled general election.
According to Ed Code sec. 5091 (e): a person appointed to fill a vacancy holds that position until the next regularly scheduled election at which time the unexpired term is included on the ballot to fill out the remaining term, along with any other board positions that may be expiring.
The next scheduled election is November 5, 2024. A provisional appointee who wished to complete the term of office through November 2026 would file in August 2024 with the elections office for the short term position and then would then be included on the November ballot to be considered by voters to complete the term.
School board members are local public officials charged with governing their community’s public schools. They set the direction for the schools and establish the structure to support district operations. Board meetings for the Miller Creek School District are typically held on the second Tuesday of each month, from 5:00 PM until approximately 9:00 PM.
Interested persons who live within the boundaries of the Miller Creek School District and who are registered voters are welcome to apply for the one existing vacancy. Applicants will be interviewed in an open session Board meeting by the four current Governing Board members at a meeting scheduled at 5:00 pm on Monday, January 22, 2024, for that purpose.
Applications for the open seat will be available beginning Monday, Dec. 11, 2023, through Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2024, between 8:30 am - 4:30 pm in the Miller Creek District Office at 380 Nova Albion Way. All applications will become public records upon receipt by the District.
An informational meeting for interested applicants will be held on Tuesday, December 19, 2023, from 4:00-5:00 pm at the Miller Creek District Office Boardroom and repeated on Friday, January 12, 2024, from 8:30-9:30 am in the same location.
