Yolo County BOE Brings Back Former Trustee

The Yolo County Board of Education has tapped a familiar face to fill the vacancy for Area 4. Former trustee Shelton Yip was appointed Tuesday to serve out the remainder of Jerry Jimenez’s term, which ends in December 2024. 

Jimenez stepped down on July 29 and is now working for the Woodland Joint Unified School District. He was elected to his first term in November 2020.

Yip is a longtime educator. He worked for the Dixon Unified School District for 27 years, serving in multiple roles. He has also held leadership positions with the Sacramento City Unified School District and the Napa County Office of Education, where he served as Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) until 2016. He served on the Yolo County Board of Education from 2012 to 2020 and is currently on the Board of Directors for the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA).

Yip’s appointment will take effect in 30 days unless a petition requesting a special election is filed with the Superintendent of Schools.
