SAN JOSE, CA - The Santa Clara County Committee on School District Organization has two vacancies in Supervisorial District 2. The County Superintendent will appoint candidates to the vacant seats. The appointees will serve until the term of office of the vacant seats expire in November 2018 and November 2020.
Any eligible person who would like to be considered as a candidate for appointment is invited to submit an application. Applicants must be registered voters and must reside within Supervisorial District 2. Supervisorial District 2 includes most of east county, encompassing all or parts of the following school districts: Alum Rock Union Elementary, Evergreen, Franklin-McKinley, Oak Grove, and San Jose Unified (High School Districts are not listed since they belong in the same supervisorial districts as their feeder elementary school districts in most instances). Applicants can verify residency in Supervisorial District 2 by calling the Santa Clara County Office of Education at (408) 453-6869.
The candidates selected cannot be employed by the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) or any school district while serving on the County Committee. School district board members are eligible to serve.
The primary responsibilities of the County Committee are the reorganization of school districts (through territory transfers and unification) and the establishment and rearrangement of governing board trustee areas in the school districts. The County Committee is the central initiator, coordinator, facilitator, and arbitrator for these operations. It formulates plans, responds to petitions, conducts public hearings, develops and releases information, and analyzes proposals.
