Following the November midterm elections, the Alhambra Unified School District (AUSD) decided to accept applications to fill the vacant First Nominating District seat. Previous board member Adele Andrade-Stadler left the district to become a member of the Alhambra City Council, leaving an empty seat and position on the Board. On Dec. 12, Superintendent Denise Jaramillo issued a press release announcing the intent to appoint a Board of Education member.
Applicants must be 18 years of age or older, a U.S. citizen, live within the boundaries of the First District, as set by the City of Alhambra, and be in accordance with the Constitution and state laws regarding the holding of a civil office. For AUSD employees who are interested in applying, it should be noted that they will be required to resign as an employee if chosen for a seat on the Board.
The Board sub-committee will review applications and select candidates to interview from Jan. 17-18. The Board will interview the finalists at a special public meeting on Jan. 24 at 5:30 p.m., announce its decision the same day, and swear in the new member at the regular board meeting on Jan. 29.
Interested parties may obtain an application from the Office of the Superintendent or at <https://www.ausd.us>. An application, resume, and letter of interest detailing qualifications need to be submitted by Jan. 16 before 5 p.m. to AUSD president Robert L. Gin.
