SAN JOSE, CA – The Santa Clara County Committee on School District Organization will make an appointment to fill two vacancies on the Committee. The Committee will appoint a candidate to a seat in Supervisorial District 1 and a seat in Supervisorial District 5. The appointees will serve until the terms of office of the vacant seats expire in November 2017.
Any eligible person who would like to be considered as a candidate for appointment is invited to submit an application.

Supervisorial District 1 includes all or parts of Cambrian, Franklin-McKinley, Gilroy Unified, Lakeside Union, Loma Prieta Joint Union, Los Gatos Union, Morgan Hill Unified, Oak Grove, San Jose Unified, Saratoga Union, and Union.
District 5 includes all or parts of Campbell Union, Cupertino Union, Los Altos, Moreland, Mountain View-Whisman, Palo Alto Unified, Santa Clara Unified, and Saratoga Union.
