Las Lomitas school board to interview candidates

Applicants for appointment to a vacant seat on the Las Lomitas School District board will be interviewed by board members on Tuesday, Sept. 24. The time had not yet been determined by the Almanac's Monday press time.

As of Monday morning, Sept. 16, only one district resident — Christy Heaton — had returned an application to the district office, although a number of others had taken out forms, according to Leticia Gomez of the district office. The application deadline was noon Wednesday, Sept. 18.

Whoever is appointed to the seat, which was held by Ann Jaquith until she resigned last month, will serve until November 2014 and must stand for election that month if he or she wishes to continue serving on the board.

The board has the option of making an appointment at the Sept. 24 meeting, but may choose to wait for a future meeting, Ms. Gomez said. Board members also may schedule a second meeting for interviewing candidates if many apply, she said.

The meeting will be held in the district office board room at 1011 Altschul Ave. in Menlo Park.
