  • Process Outlined for Naming New Board of Education Member

    Following Tuesday night’s resignation of Board of Education Director Robert Landgraf, the Board of Education approved a plan to name his successor in a timely fashion. The process allows the board to consider all qualified candidates and interview them in a public setting.

    Here are the details of the selection process:

    • All qualified candidates must contact Veronica Gleaton in person in the Superintendent’s office by 4:30 p.m. Monday, April 14.

    • Candidates will be required to sign an affidavit stating that they meet the requirements set forth by the state of Colorado.

    • They have been registered to vote in the Adams County School District 50 boundaries for 12 consecutive months.

    • They have not been convicted of committing any sexual offense against a child.

    • Candidates must agree to take and pass the standard District 50 administered background check that is required of all people who do volunteer work in District 50.

    • Candidates should submit a one page maximum letter of interest for the position.

    • Additional information, for instance a resume, is optional.

    On Tuesday, April 15 and Wednesday, April 16 (if necessary), the four current members of the Board of Education will interview candidates in Room C120 at Westminster High School at 7:00 p.m.

    On Monday, April 21, the Board of Education will hold a special Board of Education meeting discuss and vote on the new member to the Board of Education. If the Board is divided on its choice and cannot agree upon the selection within sixty days after the effective date of Mr. Landgraf’s resignation (June 7), Board President Ruben Pacheco is authorized by Colorado State Statute to choose a successor to Mr. Landgraf.

    If the Board selects and names Mr. Landgraf’s successor in its April 21 meeting, the new Board member will take the oath and be seated with the Board at its regular meeting on Tuesday, April 22 at 6:30 p.m.

    Mr. Landgraf announced last week that he is resigning from the Board because he is moving to a new home outside of School District 50 boundaries. In his resignation letter Landgraf wrote, “I wish to make it clear that I have thoroughly enjoyed my service to District 50 and realize that this decision is made after much thought.”

    Interested candidates can contact Ms. Gleaton at 720-542-5015 or

    Ms. Gleaton is located in the Superintendent’s office on the second floor of Westminster High School at 6933 Raleigh Street in Westminster.
