The Pacifica School District board of directors is accepting candidates to fill an unexpected opening. Jared Steele, who was elected to a school board post in November 2020, moved out of state to attend graduate school, said Heather Olsen, Pacifica School District superintendent.

Remaining board members will appoint someone to fill his seat until the next election in November 2022. The school board oversees governance at five elementary schools in the city as well as Ingrid B. Lacy Middle School.

To obtain a candidate information sheet, interested parties should visit or contact the office of the superintendent at (650) 738-6625. The sheets can also be picked up at the district office, 375 Reina del Mar Ave.

The deadline to apply is 4:30 p.m. on Monday. At the special board meeting at 6 p.m. Aug. 19, the board will interview finalists during a virtual public meeting and announce the selected appointee.
