Assembly Bill 1326 – Amends Existing Law To Require That Districts Post Board Vacancies On Their Website
Existing law authorizes the governing board of a school district or community college to fill a board vacancy within 60 days of the vacancy if certain criteria is met. Existing law requires that notice of the board vacancy be posted within 20 days of making a provisional appointment in three public places in the school district and in a newspaper of general circulation published within the school district.
AB 1326 adds an additional notice requirement. The bill requires a school district post the vacancy notice on the school district’s internet website. The bill also provides that if there is no newspaper of general circulation within the school district, the district need not publish the newspaper notice.
The notice requirements only apply if the board makes a provisional appointment to fill a vacancy.
(AB 1326 amends Section 5092 of the Education Code.)
