The Lake Local school board is now accepting applications from any district resident interested in filling the seat recently vacated by Kurt Johnson.
Mr. Johnson, whose term is up at the end of 2007, resigned last week because of job conflicts and family responsibilities.
The board will accept applications until 4 p.m. Jan. 2. Applications can be picked up and dropped off at the Lake board office, 28025 Main St., Millbury.
Lake Superintendent Paul Orshoski said the board will conduct interviews in the first part of January, and plans to make a decision by Jan. 12, which is the date of the board's organizational meeting.
