A Galt elementary trustee has resigned and the district is
planning to seat a provisional appointee next month.
Jennifer Collier did not attend Wednesday's school board
meeting, but forwarded a prepared letter to fellow trustees.

personal reasons she is unable to continue as a board member after
less than a year in the position.
