Teacher and Principal/Administrator Trustee Elections

Because the number of candidates did not exceed the number of open positions in the Teacher and Principal/Administrator Election, the certified candidates who submitted petitions were declared elected. The remaining election procedures for the 2019 Teacher and Principal/Administrator Trustee Election have been cancelled.

  • Jeffery Blackwell and Jacquelyn Price Ward were declared elected Teacher Trustees to serve three-year terms from November 2019-2022. 
  • Jerry Travlos was declared elected Principal/Administrator Trustee to serve a three-year term from November 2019-November 2022.
Declaration Process

In accordance with the  CTPF Election Policy, the CTPF Election Committee met on Friday, October 4, 2019, to certify candidates. Since the number of candidates did not exceed the number of open positions for Teacher and Principal/Administrator Trustee, the Committee initiated the CTPF Election Policy for “uncontested ballots.”

The Canvassing Board then convened to declare the Teacher Trustee candidates elected, and the Election Coordinator declared the Principal/Administrator candidate elected. The remaining election procedures were then cancelled.

The newly elected Teacher and Principal Administrator Trustees will serve three-year terms from 2019-2022. They will be installed at the Board of Trustees Meeting on November 21, 2019.
