A2: School Board

From a media alert sent out on Nov. 24 from the Ann Arbor Public Schools: “As a cost-saving measure, the Board is considering moving its May elections to November general elections. If a decision is made to move the election, the term for the board position vacated by Helen Gates-Bryant last week will run through December 31, 2010 (new board terms would then run January 1 through December 31). The Board will make this decision by December 16th. Those citizens considering applying for board candidacy should be advised of the possible change in term date. In light of this potential change in term, we are extending the deadline for applications for the vacant board seat to 4:00 pm on Thursday, December 3.” [Link to AAPS board applicant information]
