6 Candidates Apply for School Board Seat

January 06, 1998|LISA FERNANDEZ

Six school board candidates submitted applications to the district superintendent's office Monday.

A vacancy on the five-member board was left by former Oak Park Unified School District President Jeri Fox, who stepped down in November after hosting a party where alcohol was served to teenagers.

The four remaining trustees will call candidates before Thursday, Supt. Marilyn Lippiatt said.

The board has not determined how many applicants will make the cut, she said.

Applicants wrote essays on becoming a trustee and answered questions on leadership, issues facing the district, responsibilities of a board member, curriculum and strategies to improve communication.

Candidates will be interviewed in public at Oak Park High School on Thursday at 7 p.m.

However, the public will not be allowed to ask questions.

The new trustee is to be inducted Jan. 13.
