The Snowline Joint Unified School District Board of Trustees seeks to fill a board vacancy. In an announcement made on September 22, 2022, the Board of Trustees came to a consensus at their September 13, 2022, meeting to complete a provisional appointment process to fill a Trustee Area 4 board position left open because no candidate filed with the San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters for the upcoming November 8, 2022 election.
Current Board President Marcus Hernandez is the Trustee for Area 4, and his four-year term is ending. While Mr. Hernandez intended to run for the board position again, his candidate filing was not accepted due to a clerical misunderstanding between Mr. Hernandez and the Registrar of Voters. No other candidates filed for this office, thus leaving it vacant.
Because no candidates are running for this office, it is considered a “Failure To Elect,” according to Education Code Section 5326 and 5328. In this case and according to Snowline Board bylaw 9223, applications need to be solicited from an individual interested in being considered to fill the vacancy.
In order to be eligible for consideration, an individual must be a registered voter, reside within district boundaries, and reside in Trustee Area 4. This Trustee Area is located just east of Baldy Mesa Road, south of Highway 18, west of Highway 395, and just south of Bear Valley Road/Duncan Roads. Interested individuals must submit a letter of interest and resumé to be considered for the Board position. Board Trustee President Hernandez has announced he will submit his letter of intent and resumé to the district. Those wishing to be considered for this position must submit their paperwork no later than Friday, October 7, 2022, at 4:00 p.m. to the Snowline Joint Unified School District Office at 4075 Nielson Rd. Phelan CA 92371 or postmarked by U.S. mail no later than October 7, 2022, at 4:00 p.m. to P.O. Box 296000, Phelan, CA 92329, to the attention of Nancy Stapp.
Snowline JUSD reaches the Southern California communities of Wrightwood, Phelan, Pinon Hills, Baldy Mesa, Oak Hills, West Cajon Valley, and portions of Victorville. The K-12 district is the home of 12 schools and an adult education program.
