At the June 21 Board of Education Meeting, two new board members were appointed to fill the vacancies left by Fei Shang and Heena Agrawal, who resigned in April. We are thrilled to share that Roni Ben-Yoseph and Grace Cao have been appointed as members of our school board, effective immediately. Additionally, David Weisberg announced his resignation from the Board of Education after 11 years of service. To read more about these Board of Education changes, click here.

A candidate shall, on the date of his/her appointment, be a citizen of the United States, 18 years of age or greater, a resident of the school district for at least one year, and a registered voter. (After the selected candidate’s appointment, it will be necessary for him or her to complete a Statement of Economic Interest with the Lake County Clerk).
