Newly Sworn-In Board Selects New Board President, Board Clerk at Its First Meeting Since Trustee Area Elections

West Contra Costa Unified School District's newly sworn-in board members voted 5-0 to make Mister Phillips, Board Trustee from Area 3, as its next president for the 2021 calendar year and Jamela Smith-Folds, Board Trustee from Area 1, as its clerk.

In its first meeting following the first election by Board Trustee areas instead of at-large, WCCUSD's board was sworn-in with a virtual video ceremony. You can view the ceremony here.

 Following the swearing-in, the board voted to elect Phillips and Smith-Folds to lead the Board. Phillips is in his second term after first being elected in 2016 and is the only trustee returning to the Board. Smith-Folds (Area 1), Otheree Christian (Area 2), Phillips (Area 3), Demetrio Gonzalez Hoy (Area 4), and Leslie Reckler (Area 5) were elected to the Board on November 3.
