Manteca Unified school board officers will continue to serve on a yearly basis.
They kicked around the idea of going every two years. But those plans fell by the wayside due to lack of support at last Tuesday’s meeting.
“I don’t like the two years as an officer,” Trustee Nancy Teicheira said. “I think you should be rewarded that second year.”
Her colleagues agreed.
“Committing to two years in anything can be a disaster,” said Sam Fant. “I’m for the one year – it gives everyone (on the board) a chance to serve as an officer.”
Deborah Romero said: “I think that it’s best to go one year and, if you do a good job, you get another year.”
Since going to the once-a-month meeting format, Trustee Michael Seelye, who was once board president, had entertained the two-year plan.
“The first year you’re trying to figure it out (as an officer) and second year gives you that breathing room,” he said.
The plan had called for changing the ‘Officer and Auxiliary Personnel’ part of the MUSD bylaw, saying: “Officers shall serve for one year and until their respective successors have qualified.”
