    OUSD to release candidates' names for appointment to Board

    OUSD to give Trustees Area 1 candidate names as Board will decide interview date and process
    During their Thursday September 10, 2015 Board Meeting, the Orange Unified School Board will receive the names of the qualifying candidates from the fifteen residents that submitted paper work to be appointed by the OUSD Board to fill the vacant position in Trustee Area 1.  Diane Singer was required to resign from her Board seat after moving out of Trustee Area 1 to another part of the district.  Trustees are required to live in the Trustee Area they represent.  

    At the August 13, 2015 the OUSD Trustees voted to appoint a Trustee instead of ordering a Special Election to fill the seat. A Special Election would cost close to $500,000 dollars in Educational Funds.  The appointee will be required to then run for the seat in the next regular scheduled election in 2016.

    At this Thursday's meeting, Item 12 A on the agenda (page 5) has the Trustees deciding a date and time for a public Special Meeting and the process for that meeting to appoint one of the eligible candidates.  While the agenda ( see link below) includes a possible process scenario for the interviews, this Thursday the Trustees will vote on how the process will work during the Special Meeting.

    The appointment process and selection must take place before September 30, 2015 to avoid making a special election required.   If  the eventual OUSD Board's provisional appointment is controversial, district voters do have 30 days to file a petition for special election that would nullify the appointment and require an election.  California Education Code 5091 outlines the process for a petition after a provisional appointment:

    (c) (1) If a provisional appointment is made within the 60-day
    period, the registered voters of the district may, within 30 days
    from the date of the appointment, petition for the conduct of a
    special election to fill the vacancy. A petition shall be deemed to
    bear a sufficient number of signatures if signed by at least the
    number of registered voters of the district equal to 1 1/2 percent of
    the number of registered voters of the district at the time of the
    last regular election for governing board members, or 25 registered
    voters, whichever is greater. However, in districts with less than
    2,000 registered voters, a petition shall be deemed to bear a
    sufficient number of signatures if signed by at least 5 percent of
    the number of registered voters of the district at the time of the
    last regular election for governing board members.

       (2) The petition shall be submitted to the county superintendent
    of schools having jurisdiction who shall have 30 days to verify the
    signatures. If the petition is determined to be legally sufficient by
    the county superintendent of schools, the provisional appointment is
    terminated, and the county superintendent of schools shall order a
    special election to be conducted no later than the 130th day after
    the determination. However, if an established election date, as
    defined in Section 1000 of the Elections Code, occurs between the
    130th day and the 150th day following the order of the election, the
    county superintendent of schools may order the special election to be
    conducted on the established election date.
