To be eligible to apply for appointment to the Governing Board, an individual must be at least 18 years old, be a resident of the William S. Hart Union High School District, be a registered voter in the State of California, and not be disqualified from holding civil office by the constitution or any law of the State of California.
This appointee will hold office for the remainder of the term of office for this vacancy.
Strickland tendered his resignation from the school board due to his plans to move out of state. Strickland also resigned from the City of Santa Clarita Arts Commission, where he has served since December 2009 as a founding member and is the current chairman of the commission.
Since first elected to the school board in 2001, Strickland oversaw the building of several new schools and modernization of others, dealt with state budget cuts and helped shape the current state and county recognition as a high-performing district. Prior to serving on the Hart School District board, Strickland was an elected trustee for the Sulphur Springs School District.
The Hart School District serves 23,000 students in grades 7-12 on 16 campuses in the Santa Clarita Valley. Strickland, along with the other four board members, was instrumental in bringing the sport of lacrosse to the District starting this year, for which he is very enthusiastic.
An employee of the Hart School District may not be sworn into office as an elected or appointed member of the Governing Board, unless he or she resigns as an employee. If the employee does not resign, the employment will automatically terminate upon being sworn into office.
Applications are available on the District’s website and at the Administrative Center, 21515 Centre Pointe Parkway, Santa Clarita, CA 91350.
