Claremont Unified will appoint successor to embattled school board member – San Bernardino Sun


The Claremont Unified School District Board of Education will appoint a successor to replace its former president, Steven Llanusa, who resigned Saturday, Dec. 10, amid allegations of misconduct at a recent holiday party at his home.

In a unanimous vote Thursday, Dec. 15, the board established a timeline to fill the trustee vacancy in Area 4 of the district.

A new board member is expected to take office by Feb. 2 and serve two years. The seat will be on the November 2024 ballot.

Applications for the trustee Area 4 seat are now available on the district’s website and are due by 3 p.m. Jan. 13. To qualify for the appointment, applicants must be 18 years old, registered to vote in Claremont, and live within the boundaries of Area 4.

Under the plan adopted by the board, qualified candidates will be interviewed and a selection made by a simple majority vote at a special meeting on Jan. 18.

A subcommittee made up of new board President Kathy Archer, Vice President Bob Fass and CUSD Superintendent Jim Elsasser will vet interested applicants.
