The Board of Education is seeking interested applicants to be appointed as the Board's representative to the Personnel Commission. Interested Los Angeles County residents should submit a letter of interest no later than Friday, April 16, 2021 at 4:00pm to Alejandro Alvarez, Superintendent at 904 Willow Avenue La Puente, CA 91746. Candidates will be interviewed by the Board of Education and an appointment will be made by April 27, 2021.

The Personnel Commission is a non-partisan public body responsible for the administration of a “merit system” for the selection, retention, and promotion of classified (non-teaching) employees in the Bassett Unified School District. By law, the Commission is composed of three members – one member appointed by the Board of Education, one member nominated by the classified employees and appointed by the Board, and the third member appointed by the other two members. Commissioners are appointed for three-year terms, with the term of one member expiring each year.

To be eligible for appointment or reappointment to the Personnel Commission, a person must be a registered voter, reside within the boundaries served by the District, and must be a known adherent to the principles of the merit system (a person who by virtue of prior public or private service has given evidence of support to the merit system concept, i.e. the selection, retention, and promotion of individuals upon the basis of merit and fitness.) Appointees cannot be employees of the Bassett Unified School District or members of the governing board of any school district.
