Dr. Harinder Grewal, Eulalio Martinez, Markar Gharibian, Tami Muniz, David Folly and Joanne Waters applied for appointment to the Turlock Unified School District (TUSD) Board of Trustees.
The candidates had until January 21, 2010 to apply through the TUSD Superintendent’s office. It was reported that eight applications were pulled but only 6 were returned.
Applications for appointment will be screened by a committee comprised of three Trustees to review and select recommended applicants to interview in public at a Special Board Meeting on Monday, February 1, 2010 at 6:00pm.
The TUSD Board of Trustees will choose an applicant to appoint at the Special Meeting and the appointee will officially be seated the following day at the Regular Board Meeting on February 2nd.
The appointee will serve for only about two years until the next General Election as required by state law. There will be five TUSD Board of Trustees’ seats up for election in 2011.
On January 5, 2010, the TUSD Board discussed options to fill a Board position left vacant by Lori Crivelli who resigned after only one meeting as a newly elected Trustee due to possible conflict of interest.
