APPLE VALLEY, Calif. (VVNG.com) — On July 29th, 2021, the Apple Valley Unified School District Board of Trustees appointed Christopher Nuñez to fill the Board’s vacant Area 1 position. The position became available when Adeline Blasingame, former Area 1 Trustee, resigned effective June 15th, 2021. 

At the June 10th Board Meeting, the AVUSD Board voted to make a provisional appointment for the vacant position rather than conduct a special election. Anyone interested in becoming the Area 1 Trustee was required to complete the Application Packet and be a registered voter and reside within Area 1 of the Apple Valley Unified School District. The deadline for filing an application was 12:00 pm on Monday, July 19th.

The AVUSD Board of Trustees conducted a Special Board Meeting on Thursday, July 29th in which they had the opportunity to take action on making a provisional appointment to the Board. Eight candidates were interviewed during the meeting.
