Sacramento County Superintendent of Schools David W. Gordon is announcing that County Board of Education Trustee Christopher W. Woods has resigned from his post as Trustee of Area 3 effective January 11, 2010.
Mr. Woods moved out of the trustee area he represented. His term was scheduled to expire June 2010. He had served on the Board since 2002, having previously served as Board Vice-President and President.
Because of the timing of this Board vacancy, the Education Code requires that the Sacramento County Board of Education either order an election or make a provisional appointment to fill this vacancy. The Board will add an item to the January 19, 2010 agenda regarding this issue.
If the Board orders an election to fill the vacancy, the election will be consolidated with the presently scheduled election on June 8, 2010.
Area 3 represents the following communities: Arden, Arden Oaks, Arden Park, Campus Commons, La Riviera, Rosemont, Town and Country Village, and portions of Carmichael and Foothill Farms. Area 3 also represents portions of Sacramento City Unified School District, San Juan Unified School District, and Twin Rivers Unified School District.
