NEEDLES — Board candidate interviews for areas 1 and 3 are to be conducted during a special meeting of the Needles Unified School District Board of Trustees meeting in a special workshop session on Tuesday, Aug. 20.

Open session begins at 5 p.m., an hour earlier than usual, in the district support office at 1900 Erin Dr. in Needles.

Candidates for the two areas: one surrounding Big River, the other for the Amboy and Essex area; are to be asked questions by the board, which will also review qualifications of the candidates. Provision appointments for both areas and swearing in ceremonies may be conducted the same night.

Consideration and possible appointment of the new school board members precedes a workshop on board governance with Kegham Tashjian, Ph.D.

A regular session of the school board is to be held on Aug. 27.
