Walnut Creek School District Superintendent Patty Wool emailed parents Tuesday, announcing the decision, by long-time board member Dan Walden, to not seek re-election. He was one of three candidates running for three seats on the school board. Now that he’s bowing out of the race, the race needs at least one new candidate to run.
Dear Walnut Creek School District Community,
Hopefully, everyone is enjoying a wonderful summer. The school district is gearing up for the 2010-11 school year and the reopening of schools on August 25. We did want to make sure that our entire community has heard that Walnut Creek School District board member, Dan Walden, will not be continuing as a board member after December when his term comes to an end. Dan has served with dignity the students of Walnut Creek for twenty-two years. His tremendous passion, expertise, and exuberance will be missed, and we thank Dan for his amazing work on behalf of the students of Walnut Creek. August 11 is the last date to file papers with the county elections office for the position of Governing Board member in Walnut Creek School District. If you would like information about the position, please contact any of our present board members.
Have a wonderful rest of the summer. See you in the fall.
Patricia Wool, Ed.D.SuperintendentWalnut Creek School District
