Former Shorewood School Board President Paul Zovic is among nine candidates to apply for the panel's open seat.
Following the resignation of Michael Mishlove, the district began looking for a new board member.
The applicants include:
- Jane Beyer
- Mildred Coby
- Gregg Davis
- Susan Gleysten
- Robert Lynch
- Ruth McGuire
- Paru Shah
- Niki Karp Skinner
- Paul Zovic
The board will conduct 20-minute interviews with each candidate in open session on Dec. 18 starting at 6 p.m., and pick one to become its fifth member Dec. 20.
The process will include a five-minute presentation from each candidate, followed by a five-minute follow-up question period from the board. Then the officials will spend 10 minutes asking two to three prepared interview questions.
The new member will serve on the School Board through April 2013, at which point they will have the opportunity to run for re-election.
