Incumbents Alan Sarver and Chris Thomsen were elected Tuesday to two seats on the board of the Sequoia Union High School District.
With all 211 precincts reporting, Mr. Sarver received 13,161 votes and Mr. Thomsen, 12,308. Challenger Georgia Jack finished a close third with 11,861 votes.
The school board faces a high-stakes issue: how the district, which is built out and close to capacity in student population, will address an expected 25 percent surge in enrollment by 2020.
Along with the academic achievement gap that separates students from wealthy elementary school districts from less well endowed districts in Redwood City and East Palo Alto, the other key issue is implementation of Common Core standards, starting with the current school year.
