Mountain Oaks Board of Directors Election

Every year we hold a Mountain Oaks Board of Directors election to fill the vacant seats on our Board. The Mountain Oaks Board of Directors is comprised of three Mountain Oak's parents and two community members.

This year, we have two parent member vacancies on the Board and two parents running for those vacancies. Roxanna Rabe is an incumbent and Lauren Coolidge is a candidate. Their applications can be found on the Mountain Oaks website.

Each student's household and staff member is allowed one vote. The link to vote will be emailed to each family and staff. Please vote before February 16, 2023, at 12:30 PM. We will have paper copies available at all 3 sites for those families that do not have access to the internet. Families are also welcome to use a Chromebook at school to vote. If you have any questions, please contact the front office at 754-0532.
