Posted on 09/07/2022
Genesee ISD LogoFLINT – The Genesee Intermediate School District (GISD) will begin accepting applications from citizens who are interested in filling the vacant seat on the Board of Education of Davison Community Schools.

Pursuant to its unanimously approved Board Resolution, dated August 31, 2022, the Davison Community Schools Board of Education has requested that the Genesee Intermediate School District Board of Education appoint a qualified and registered elector residing within the boundaries of the Davison Community Schools to fill a vacancy on their board of education. By Resolution, the Davison Community Schools Board of Education determined that a former Board Trustee vacated their office by moving outside of the Davison Community Schools’ boundaries, and that more than 30 days have passed since the vacancy first occurred, resulting in the request for the GISD Board of Education to appoint a new board member pursuant to Michigan Election Law (MCL 168.311(1)). The GISD Board of Education has developed a fair and transparent process to fill the vacancy as requested, which will include an opportunity for qualified applicants to be interviewed by the GISD Board of Education.

An applicant must be a registered voter who lives within the boundaries of Davison Community Schools. To be considered for appointment, candidates must submit a one-page letter of application and a one-page resume to the GISD Superintendent’s Office no later than 4:00 p.m. on September 20, 2022.

Applications should be addressed to:

Mr. Richard Hill, President
Genesee Intermediate School District
Board of Education
2413 West Maple Avenue
Flint, Michigan 48507

All interviews and meetings are open to the public and will be held in the Legacy Auditorium of the Erwin L. Davis Education Center, 2413 West Maple Avenue, Flint, Michigan. Interviews are scheduled for Tuesday, September 27, 2022 at 5:00 pm. The GISD Board of Education will select and appoint the new board member immediately following completion of all interviews.

The names of the candidates and a complete schedule of interviews and meetings will be posted after applications have been submitted. Pursuant to the Revised School Code, the new board member will serve until December 31, 2024.
