Governing Board Elections

General Information for Candidates

General Information for Candidates

Four seats on the Board of Education are up for election on November 8, 2022.  
  • Three: Four-year seats
  • One: Two-year seat
The Coronado Unified School District is governed by five members of the Board of Education who serve staggered four-year terms. School board members are locally elected public officials entrusted with governing our community's public schools.
The Statewide General Election is on November 8, 2022. Four seats on the Board of Education will be up for election (one seat is two-year). The Board uses a voting system of "Elections at Large" which means that Board members may reside anywhere within the district's boundaries and shall be elected by all voters in the district.
The incumbents, whose terms expire this year are as follows:
Dr. Helen Anderson-Cruz
Lee Pontes
Bruce Shepherd
Esther Valdes-Clayton
It is vitally important that voters pay attention to the citizens they select to oversee their schools - the governing board members to whom they entrust their children and their tax dollars. It is equally important that school board candidates understand the depth of commitment required to effectively fulfill the school board role.
