The Alhambra Unified School District is looking to appoint someone to the Board of Education’s First Nominating District seat, occupied by Adele Andrade-Stadler until she was elected to Alhambra’s City Council last December.
Those living in the First Nominating District, which comprises northwest Alhambra, are eligible to apply, according to a district announcement. Candidates must be registered voters and at least 18 years old. The new member would take part in making decisions about district policy and finances, including how to spend bond money for Alhambra’s school facilities.
For the application, candidates will answer questions about their vision for the school district, their experience and perspective on public education and serving children and what they can bring to Alhambra schools, said Board of Education President Bob Gin.
Appointing a school board member allows the district to save money, Gin added. “The money we save we can put back into classrooms,” he said.
The deadline for applications is Jan. 16 at 5 p.m. Applications must be addressed to Gin at the Alhambra Unified School District administration building. A public interview of finalists will be conducted on Jan. 24 and the new member will be seated on Jan. 29.
The school board appointment would last for two years, before the candidate would have to run in order to retain their seat.
