NOTICE AND REQUEST FOR APPLICANTS FOR PROVISIONAL APPOINTMENT TO THE
SHAFFER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DISTRICT
Due to the resignation of a Board of Trustees of the Shaffer Elementary School District, as well
as the insufficiency of candidates for the November 6, 2018, governing board election, the Board
voted at its May 2020, meeting to call for provisional appointments to fill the vacated seats.
Community members wishing to be considered for a provisional appointment must:
1. Be a resident of the school district listed above.
2. Complete a questionnaire, which may be obtained by contacting Jeff Baker at
Shaffer Elementary School District, Litchfield, California, (530) 254-6577.
Completed questionnaires must be submitted to the Shaffer Elementary School
District Office no later than 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday June 10, 2020.
Applications from candidates meeting the above qualifications will be reviewed by the Shaffer
Elementary School District Board of Trustees, and the Board may fill the vacancies, at the June
16, 2020, meeting of the Board. Unless a petition calling for a special election, containing a
sufficient number of signatures, is filed in the Lassen County Office of Education within 30 days
following a provisional appointment, the appointment shall become effective. The appointee
shall be sworn in and seated at the June 2020 Board meeting and shall hold office until the next
regularly-scheduled board member election, which will be in November 2020.
