Citizens interested in applying to fill the unexpired term for the Place 7 seat on the Carroll School Board must complete an application and turn it in to the CISD Superintendent’s Office by noon on Monday, October 2, 2017.
The Carroll School Board invites interested parents and taxpayers to volunteer their time and expertise to serve on the School Board. The seat was vacated this month by the resignation of Board President Chris Archer, who ran and was recently elected to fill a vacancy on the Southlake City Council.
School Board Vice President Sheri Mills said Trustees will consider all applications and select individuals to interview during Executive Session at a Special School Board meeting in October. The appointment will be made by majority vote of the School Board in open session.
The individual will be appointed to serve in the vacancy until the May 2018 election when voters will elect a candidate to serve out the remaining year for Place 7. The person appointed by the Board will have the choice whether or not to run in the May 2018 election. The seat will come up for election again for a three-year term in May 2019.
