When asked if Goodman would now be leaving SSFUSD, Councilwoman Liza Normandy responded “The process is that Maurice will need to submit his resignation with the County Supt. & then the Board of Trustees will discuss either a special election or by appointment with public interviews of those interested..based on history, Appointment has been the decision of the Board at no cost to the district.”
“Our community should also keep in mind that in 2016 – we will have school board elections with two open seats – which would be a great opportunity for someone to learn & run a campaign for next year.” Normandy added.
