David Brooks, a longtime Newport-Mesa Unified School District trustee, will retire in March, officials reported.

Brooks announced his retirement, which will be effective March 11, at Tuesday's school board meeting, according to district spokeswoman Laura Boss. The 60-day notice gives the school board time to review options to fill the vacancy that will be left by Brooks.

“It has been my sincere honor to serve as a trustee for the last 16 years," Brooks said in a released statement.

Brooks started his career as a Newport-Mesa trustee in April 1998. During his retirement announcement, he reflected on several district highlights including the implementation of "strong curriculum resulting in high achieving schools and successful passage of two facility school bonds, Measure A and Measure F, which provides current and future state of the art instructional, theatrical and sports facilities in N-MUSD."
