Loretta Larson, a trustee of the Buena Park School District since 1979, has resigned from the school board. She told fellow school board members that pressure of her private business made it necessary to step down from the board, effective immediately.
The remaining four members of the board will meet March 14 to decide whether to appoint someone to fill the absent seat or to call for an election in November.
Larson is president of American West Personnel Services Inc. of Fullerton. A resident of Buena Park, she was reelected without opposition last November to a four-year term on the board.
School board member Lloyd Davis said Tuesday that if a new board member is appointed, he or she will serve until November, 1989, when an election would be held for the final two years of Larson's term. If the board decides to call for an immediate election, it would be held this November and would be for the remaining three years of Larson's term, Davis said.
Buena Park is an elementary school district, serving about 3,900 youngsters in kindergarten through eighth grade.
