The search for a new school trustee continues at Big Spring Independent School District.
Officials have been unsuccessful in their efforts to find a replacement for District 3 trustee Alan Partee, who declined to seek re-election in May.
District 3 covers an area which includes the Coronado Hills and Indian Hills subdivisions, as well as homes in the general vicinity of the VA Medical Center.
“We're actively looking (for a new trustee),” BSISD Superintendent Steven Saldivar said, “But we've been unable to fill the position. We just haven't had any luck finding anybody.”
To be a school board member, applicants must be a U.S. and Texas citizen, 18 years of age or older, live within the district they will represent and be a registered voter. Once appointed, the new trustee would agree to serve until the next general election, scheduled for May 2012. At that time, they could run for the remainder of the district's unexpired term, School Board President Jeff Brorman said.
