The Bullhead City School District (BCSD) governing board is accepting applications to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of member Geni Borland, who stepped down this month. She was elected to a full four-year term in 2018. The non-partisan term expires December 31 of 2022, and the
seat will be on the November 2022 ballot.

The board is expected to recommend its newest member at its January 13 meeting, which is open to the public. A formal appointment will then be made by Mohave County School Superintendent Mike File. Under state law, File has the right to accept or reject a board’s recommendation, or unilaterally name his own appointee.

School board members are responsible for setting policies and goals, reviewing and approving budgets, and hiring and evaluating the superintendent. They do not receive a salary for monthly meetings, periodic student disciplinary or personnel hearings, or workshops. According to state law, potential candidates must be registered voters who have lived within the District’s boundaries at least one year.

A full list of statutory qualifications and restrictions is available at https://policy.azsba.org/asba/browse/bullhead/bullhead/BBBA. Interested candidates
who meet the legal requirements should submit letters of interest by January 3 to the school district offices at 1004 Hancock Road, Building 100, in Bullhead City. They may also be emailed to bcsdboard@crsk12.org . District boundaries are posted at https://resources.mohavecounty.us/file/SchoolSuperintendent/SchoolDistricts_2020.pdf .

Board members may choose to interview candidates in open session at the January meeting. Meeting dates, times and agendas for BCSD are posted at www.crsk12.org and on Facebook at Bullhead City School District (@BCESD) and Colorado River Schools (@crsk12az). Bullhead City School District traces its history to what’s now known as “The Little Red Schoolhouse,” which opened 75 years ago, and now has six schools serving pre-kindergarten through eighth grade students.
