The Bullhead City School District (BCSD) governing board is accepting applications to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of member Brandee Dubois, who stepped down this month. She was elected as a write-in candidate to a full four-year term last November after having been previously
appointed to fill an unexpired term.

The board is expected to recommend its newest member at its August 12 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.

Because a vacancy is being filled, that seat will be up for election next year (2022) rather than at the end of Dubois' full four-year term.
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.

Potential candidates must live within the District’s boundaries. Interested candidates who meet the legal requirements should submit letters of interest by July 28 to the school district offices at 1004 Hancock Road, Building 100, in Bullhead City. They may also be emailed to [email protected] . 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 August 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 almost 75 years ago, and now has six schools serving students pre- kindergarten through eighth grade.
