Hello Belmont-Redwood Shores Families,

Last week, I shared that Trustees Tashjian and Phan resigned from their board positions effective June 19, 2019. We plan to celebrate their leadership and service to the community at their last board meeting on June 6, 2019 at 6:15pm. You're welcome to stop by.

At last night's meeting, the Board decided to use the provisional appointment process to replace Trustees Tashjian and Phan. Eligible residents of the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District who are interested in submitting their name for an appointment to the Board may do so by June 3 via this application , which is also posted on the BRSSD homepage . The Board will review applications at its meeting on June 6. Candidate interviews will be conducted in public at a special board meeting on June 17. The two finalists are expected to be voted into office at the June 20 board meeting.

Additionally, the Board welcomes community input regarding what candidate qualities or factors the Board should keep in mind during the selection process. Such input, as well as letters of support for individual candidates, can be emailed directly to the Board at board@brssd.org . Individuals who are considering applying to be a Trustee are welcome to contact board members to learn more about the duties and time commitments. However, in the interest of fairness and transparency, the Board asks that advocacy on behalf of candidates be limited to public comment at board meetings, email, and written correspondence.
