Sue Kuwabara elected to serve one-year term as president of the IUSD Board of Education


During its annual organizational meeting on Tuesday night, the IUSD Board of Education voted unanimously to elect Sue Kuwabara to a one-year term as president and Michael Parham to a one-year term as clerk.

Sharon Wallin, who was president this past year, was honored for her service.

First elected in 2000, Kuwabara is serving her third term on the school board after running unopposed in the 2008 election. She is also the California School Boards Association’s representative to the CIF Southern Section Executive Board and has served for eight years on CSBA’s Delegate Assembly, which is that organization’s primary policy-making body.

In addition to electing officers, the IUSD Board of Education on Tuesday night approved school site liaison assignments, appointed representatives to various committees and established meeting dates through December 2011. (The next two regular meetings are scheduled for Jan. 18 and Feb. 1.)

Board members also voted to certify IUSD’s First Interim Report of 2010-11 as “positive,” meaning the district is projected to meet all of its financial obligations as mandated by the county.
