Chester Chau: Clerk
Clerk Chester Chau has been on the school board for the past eight years after serving as an adjunct professor of accounting and finance at CSULA and Pasadena City College. He attended AHS and was the ASB president his senior year. Chau attended UC Berkeley, receiving a B.S. in Business Administration. He later received his MBA degree in finance from CSULA.
The school board runs on a rotation system and for this term Chau holds the position of clerk. The job includes signing documents but Chau basically has the same amount of voice as any other member. In the next term, Chau will be rotated to the position of vice president.
Chau greatly believes that every child should have a quality education. If the school district was to receive more money, the school board would have to see how to make it last.
“The AUSD wants to compress [the incoming money] to the best of the staff’s ability [and keep teachers rather than lose them],” Chau said.
