Barring any holdups, the school board should decide this week who will take Rosa Gill's vacant seat.
The plan is to meet from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday to interview all nine people who want to fill the District 4 opening caused by Gill's appointment to the state House. The board is slated to meet from 9 a.m. to noon on Thursday to make a final selection.
The new board member would be sworn in on Aug. 18 and finish out Gill's term, which expires November 2011.
(The applications for all nine candidates are listed in this post.)
