The San Bernardino County board of education unanimously elected Hardy Brown II as president of the five-member governing body for one year during its monthly meeting on Dec. 3.

Brown, who was just elected to a new term in November, represents Trustee Area D, which includes the districts of Rialto, San Bernardino and Snowline.

In addition to the presidency, Laura Mancha was elected vice president of the board.

Mancha represents Trustee Area C, which includes the school districts of Chaffey Joint Union, Chino Valley, Cucamonga, Fontana, Mountain View and portions of Ontario-Montclair. Board members are elected to four-year terms.

Prior to the meeting, Brown, along with newly elected board members Ken Larson of Trustee Area A and Rita Fernandez-Loof of Trustee Area B were sworn into office.

The board establishes policy, adopts an annual budget, approves building plans and hears student expulsion, inter-district transfer and charter school appeals. The board meets on the first Monday of the month.
