Board of Education to elect a new president during final meeting of the calendar year

The IUSD Board of Education will convene for its final meeting of 2010 tonight at 7 at the District Office.

As this is the board’s annual organizational meeting, trustees will elect a new president and clerk and set meeting dates for 2011. In addition, the five-member board is scheduled to appoint school liaisons and representatives to various committees.

A little later in the session, the Board will also vote to certify IUSD’s First Interim Report, indicating the district’s fiscal health as of this fall.

The Orange County Superintendent of Schools requires every district to examine and certify its financial condition as “positive,” “qualified” or “negative” in December and again in March. Positive is the ideal certification, while qualified signals that a district may not be able to meet its financial obligations for the current year and two subsequent years. A negative certification means a district will not be able to meet its financial obligations over this period.

Staff will recommend certifying IUSD’s report as positive, indicating the district will be able to present a balanced budget.

Irvine’s District Office is located at 5050 Barranca Parkway in Irvine. To access an agenda for tonight’s session, click here.
