JUST IN: LA Unified board votes in Zimmer as new president
LA School Report | July 1, 2015
LA Unified board member Steve Zimmer was unanimously elected today to become the new board president, giving the board its strongest pro-teacher president in more than a decade. Zimmer, vice president for the last two years, succeeds Richard Vladovic, who served as president since 2013.
The vote played out without a motion from any other board member to suspend the two-year rule limiting the years of service as president. Mónica García and Mónica Ratliff had mentioned the possibility last week as a way to keep Vladovic in the chair another year.
Zimmer appointed George McKenna to serve as board vice president.
