NORTH EDWARDS — The Muroc Joint Unified School District is seeking ap­pli­cants from Edwards Air Force Base to fill a va­cancy on its governing Board.

Board member Tatiana Matta resigned her po­si­tion effective March 11, lead­ing the Board to decide to make an appointment to fill her seat. The appointee will serve the remainder of her term, until Dec. 10, 2020.

The district, which over­sees elementary, junior and senior high schools in Boron and Edwards Air Force Base, uses a sys­tem, approved by dis­trict voters in 1990, that dic­tates geographical rep­re­sen­tation on the Board. Two trustees each are elect­ed from Boron and the base, and one is elected to represent North Edwards. Due to the nature of mil­it­ary service, Edwards rep­re­sentatives seldom are able to fill full four-year terms.

Applicants must be at least 18, reside on Edwards AFB and registered to vote within the Muroc Joint Unified School District.

Applications are avail­able at the district office, 17100 Foothill Ave., North Ed­wards, or online at in the “News” section or by click­ing the “School Board” link.

Completed applications must be returned to the dis­trict office no later than 4 p.m. March 29. Office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
