A longtime school district board member announced his intent to retire this week, according to officials.
Newport-Mesa Unified School District board of education trustee David Brooks announced his intent to retire during Tuesday’s board meeting. His final day is set for March 11. He joined the board in April 1998.
The 60-day notice gives the board time to review options to fill the vacancy, NMUSD spokeswoman Laura Boss explained in a press release.
“During his announcement, he shared several highlights and accomplishments that have occurred during his tenure,” Boss continued. “Of significance he noted, implementation of strong curriculum resulting in high achieving schools and successful passage of two facility school bonds, Measure A and Measure F, which provides current and future state of the art instructional, theatrical and sports facilities in N-MUSD.”
“It has been my sincere honor to serve as a trustee for the last 16 years,” he said.
