The San Miguel school district board is seeking applicants for a short-term appointment to end in November 2014.
The vacancy was created by the resignation of board member John Green, who was recently elected to serve on the San Miguel Community Services District board. Serving on both boards was a conflict of interest, according to the school's attorney.
Applicants must be 18 years of age, a California resident living within school district boundaries, and must not be legally barred from holding office. To apply, submit a letter of interest, including a résumé outlining your educational background and detailing why you would be best qualified for the position, to Jan Brown, administrative assistant to the superintendent, by mail at Lillian Larsen School, 1601 L St., San Miguel, Calif. 93451; by email at firstname.lastname@example.org; or by phone at 805-467-3216, ext. 203. Deadline for applications is Feb. 1.
