The Steens Point Area Public School Board decided unanimously on Monday to take applications to fill a vacancy left by the resignation of Patricia Baker.
Applications are due by 4 p.m. on Jan. 27. The board will interview candidates and choose an appointee during a special board meeting on Feb. 1.
The appointee will be sworn in during a regular board meeting on Feb. 8 to serve one of the two years left in Baker’s term. The seat will be up for re-election in 2022.
Baker resigned at the end of December to fill a judicial appointment in Portage Co. Circuit Court.
