Board accepts resignation of District 4 trustee, approves process to temporarily fill seat


The Dallas ISD Board of Trustees on Feb. 5 accepted the resignation of Jaime Resendez, who represented District 4.
Trustees also approved a process to potentially appoint a trustee to temporarily represent the seat that covers Southeast Dallas, Seagoville, and Balch Springs. The appointment would last until May, which is when voters will elect a District 4 trustee to a regular three-year term of office.
Under the process approved by trustees, the district on Feb. 6 will issue a call for resumes and statements of interest for candidates who meet the legal requirements and are interested in temporarily filling the District 4 seat. The resumes will be due by 5 p.m. on Feb. 19.
Trustees will review candidates before the Feb. 28 board meeting, and then interview and potentially select a candidate on March 4 to temporarily fill the seat for about two months until the May election.
