The Inglewood School District is now accepting applications to serve on the Inglewood five-member Advisory Board of Education. Residents in Inglewood and Ladera Heights are welcome to apply.
There are two open slots, which became available in the spring. Appointees will serve through the next regularly scheduled election in April 2015.
Eligible candidates must be at least 18 years of age, citizens of the United States, residents of the district, registered to vote and qualified to hold a civil office.
IUSD State Trustee Don Brann plans to appoint successful applicants to the advisory position by the end of October. Application packets are available in the District Office at 401 S. Inglewood Ave., and must be completed by the close of business Sept. 22.
The school district has been without a formal Board of Education since the state took control of it in 2012. The advisory board does not have power to set policy, but rather make recommendations to Brann.
If you have been wanting to help improve the state of Inglewood schools, now is the chance to make a difference.
