CISD Board seeks applications for vacancy

The Comal Independent School District's board of trustees will fill the vacancy caused by Nick Nichols' recent resignation by appointment in November.

The board officially accepted board president Nick Nichols' resignation at its workshop meeting. Nichols has represented single-member District 3, which encompasses the north side of Canyon Lake and some of Spring Branch, since 1999. His current term expires in May, 2005.

Nichols submitted his letter of resignation on Sept. 30 citing personal health issues. He has been president of the board since May and served as secretary of the board for three years before that.

As a result of the resignation, the school board had to decide how to fill the vacancy. It chose to adopt an application process and appoint a patron from District 3 in November.

Eligible voters must apply with a letter of interest and a resume by Monday, Nov. 8, at 5 pm. A one-page application also must be filled out and notarized. All documents must be submitted to Jeanie Mendez in the Comal ISD Central Office.

Eligible applicants will be interviewed by the school board at the regular meeting of the board on Thursday, Nov. 18, at 6 pm, at Bill Brown Elementary School. The board plans to make the appointment that night.

To be eligible for the vacant District 3 seat, the applicants must live within District 3's single-member district boundaries, have been a resident of Texas for at least one year, and a resident of the school district for at least six months; be a United States citizen; be a registered voter; and, be at least 18.

The regular election to fill the District 3 seat for another three-year term will be held on May 7, 2005.
