Dear Altar Valley Families,
Last December, an important chapter closed in the Altar Valley School District. Patricia King, a twenty-five year veteran of our governing board, ended her final term of service as a governing board member. Individuals of Pat King’s caliber are few and far between. She gave selflessly of her valuable time and her considerable talents for the betterment of our district and the futures of our students. With her hallmark smile and a wealth of knowledge about our school district and our community, Mrs. King was a valuable asset to the board. She has contributed countless hours serving on many committees, organizations, and projects throughout Three Points. While we are sad to see her retire from the Altar Valley Governing Board, we say goodbye with gratitude and admiration.
With Mrs. King’s retirement, Altar Valley School District is in the process of filling the vacancy on the governing board. Distribution of flyers and announcements seeking potential board candidates are currently among the public. A Community Action Committee (CAC) has come together to interview and recommend potential candidates. During the month of February, the CAC will meet to review the applications and interview potential candidates. This committee will then forward one name to the Pima County School Superintendent, Linda Arzoumanian, for final consideration. Our goal is to have this appointee take the oath of office at our February 11, 2015, governing board meeting. Thank you again Mrs. King for all that you’ve given to Altar Valley School District.
Dr. David Dumon, Superintendent
