Applicants sought for board seat

The Las Lomitas School District is seeking applicants for an open school board seat after board member Ann Jaquith turned in her resignation last week.

Ms. Jaquith resigned after the Aug. 14 board meeting, citing family reasons, according to the district. She was elected to the board in 2010. Her replacement will serve out her term, which ends November 2014.

District residents who wish to apply for a seat on the five-member board have until noon Sept. 18. To be eligible, an applicant must be 18 or older and a registered voter, and must live within the district's boundaries.

Candidates will be interviewed by the board in open session on Sept. 24.

Board members are inviting anyone interested in applying for the seat to a panel discussion on the roles and responsibilities of serving on the board. The discussion will be on Sept. 11 from 5 to 6 p.m. in the La Entrada Middle School multi-use room, 2200 Sharon Road in Menlo Park.

Those interested in applying for the board seat may call Superintendent Lisa Cesario at 854-2880.
