CULVER CITY — Culver City school board member Tashon McKeithan has announced her resignation from the school board, effective June 30.
McKeithan said she and her family are moving out of the city.
On June 7, the school board decided not to fill McKeithan’s vacant seat because her term expires at the end of November along with board members Steven Lavin and Summer McBride.
Voters will decide who will replace McKeithan Nov. 8.
“It has been my honor to serve the residents of Culver City, and I am proud of the work we have done as a board,” McKeithan said. “I am especially pleased [the district] has made significant progress in the areas of special education and the arts.
“We still have lots of work left to do, but I am encouraged at how far we have come and how committed the district is to improving in these areas.”
McKeithan was elected to the board in 2018. She is a professional educator, serving as the executive director of the Child Educational Center in La Canada. Prior to that she was the director of early childhood programs at the Center for Early Education in West Hollywood.
She began her educational career teaching elementary school in New York.
She holds a master’s degree in early childhood and elementary education and a doctoral degree in K-12 educational leadership.
