County school superintendent seeks applicants to fill CVUSD board vacancy

Yavapai County School Superintendent Tim Carter has announced a vacancy on the Chino Valley Unified School District Governing Board. The opening was created by the death of veteran governing board member Bob Kaecker.

"Mr. Kaecker was a pleasure to work with and always kept the best interest of students in the forefront of his thinking," Carter said. "His dedication to the district was obvious to all who knew him. He will be sincerely missed."

Anyone interested in filling the vacancy should send a letter of interest and a résumé to Tim Carter, Yavapai County School Superintendent, Yavapai County Education Service Agency, 1015 Fair St., Prescott, AZ 86305-1852; fax 928-771-3329; or email

Applicants should include information about themselves, why they want to serve as a board member, their residence and mailing addresses, and home/work phone numbers. Candidates may include letters of recommendation or support if they wish.
