Stockton Unified is accepting applications for the board seat that became vacant following the recent passing of Sara Cazares. The district released the application a few moments ago. The deadline to apply is May 20. Applicants will be interviewed at a public meeting May 23 — two weeks from today — and a board vote on the replacement is expected the same day.
Whoever is chosen will complete Cazares’ term, which expires in December 2014. The replacement could run for a full term in the November 2014 election. Cazares served Area 6 and her replacement also must reside in that area. Here’s a map.
