On May 16th, a letter was sent out by Rancho Santa Fe School District Superintendent Lindy Delaney announcing the resignation of Rancho Santa Fe School District board member Richard Burdge.
In the letter, Lindy Delaney stated:
“During the past 11 years, Richard served the Rancho Santa Fe School District extremely well… Before joining the School Board, Richard single-handedly and successfully managed the passage of a $4.8 million dollar Prop K GO Bond Measure for the modernization of District facilities, $2.8 million of which was used in the 2010 renovation of the new school.
“During Richard’s years on the Board, he played an instrumental role in maintaining the highest standards possible for the education of our students. Among his many contributions, he was involved in the successful passage of bond measures, renovation of the current site, obtaining $8.2 million dollars from the State of California for modernization and new construction, acquisition of property adjacent to the Rowe Campus, the refunding of the 2004 and 2008 GO Bonds, and helping the District maintain a strong fiscal position through one of the most challenging times this District has ever encountered.
“We wish Richard and his family the best life has to offer and hope that he knows how very much his time and energy and dedication to our District has made a difference in the lives of our students and community. On a personal note, it has been a pleasure and honor to work with Richard all of these years.”
Anyone interested in the position is required to apply by May 19th at 10am. Interviews will be performed the following day in the school’s performing art center at 8am.
