OUSD decides on appointment process
OUSD decides on Area 1 Trustee appointment process
OUSD Board decides to "paper screen" for candidates
The Orange Unified School Board tonight (9/15/15) in a Special Meeting voted to "paper screen" the candidates who have qualified for appointment to the OUSD Board to replace resigned Area 1 Trustee Diane Singer.
The candidates making it through the paper screening will appear before the OUSD Board on Monday September 21, 2015. That meeting will not be a formal interview. Each "eligible" candidate will give a 3 minute speech. The Board will ask the other candidates not be in the Board room while the other candidates are speaking, however, candidates legally maybe present if they wish to ignore that request. Public comments of three minutes per speaker will also be heard by the Board.
After the presentations, the Trustees will nominate and vote on nominated candidates in public. The first candidate to receive 4 votes will be appointed.
The appointment is provisional, residents have 30 days to circulate petitions that call for a Special Election. Only about 2500 signatures will be needed.

The OUSD board must select a candidate before midnight September 29th. Failure to do so will automatically result in a Special Election.
The Board decided to postpone the selection of the "process" to appoint a new Trustee at its September 10th meeting because a planned teleconference participation by OUSD Board President John Ortega did not take place. Tonight's Special Election was called to allow the Board to select the process.
