J.D. Grant, a Kuna dentist, has been selected as the newly appointed Trustee for the Kuna School District School Board representing Zone 2.
A vacancy on the school board for Zone 2 was created when Trustee Royleen Anderson resigned recently. The remaining time of her term is to be filled to complete the five person School Board. When a term for a school board member is not completed due to a resignation, an appointment is made by the remaining trustees. Interested applicants were interviewed and the position for Zone 2 was announced at the August 12th Board of Trustees Meeting.
J.D. Grant is the candidate appointed to the open position. As a local dentist who resides in Zone 2 he is dedicating his time to help guide the Kuna School District through challenging times. A previously failed Bond in the fall of 2013, followed by a successfully passed Spring Bond vote, has created community tension, resulting in a recall effort of another current school board trustee.
A recall election will be held for School Board Trustee Michael Law on August 26. See page 4 for more information and a map of zone 4 regarding this election.
