Rancho Santa Fe School board elects officers, sets meeting schedule


By Karen Billing

The Rancho Santa Fe School District Board elected new officers Dec. 12, once again voting Richard Burdge the board president. The board elected Todd Frank as vice president and Tyler Seltzer as clerk.

During the organizational meeting, the board also set its meeting schedule for the upcoming year, marking an end to a trial run of hosting several meetings at 1 p.m. this year.

Superintendent Lindy Delaney said it was her preference that meetings return to a night schedule as it is a better use of her time. The board agreed to return to a more traditional schedule, although meetings will be held at 5 p.m. rather than 6 p.m.

Meetings will be held the first Thursday of every month in 2014 with the exceptions of Tuesday, Jan. 14; Wednesday, Feb. 5; Thursday, July 10; Thursday, Aug. 22; and Thursday Dec. 11.

At January’s meeting, Delaney will bring potential changes to the dress code before the board, as well as a parent survey on bonds to renovate the school gym that could go out to families that month.
