Residents of Red Lion Area School District can apply for a school board seat left vacant by the resignation of the Rev. Charles Salisbury, who moved out of the district.
Superintendent Scott Deisley said Salisbury, former pastor at St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Red Lion, was transferred to a new job outside the school district.
Salisbury was sworn in last December and resigned effective Sept. 7, Deisley said. The board has 30 days to fill the open seat and will conduct interviews and appoint the new board member at its Oct. 4 meeting.
People who are interested in serving as a school board member must live in Region 1, which is the borough of Red Lion, for at least a year prior to appointment.
They must also be at least 18 years old and cannot hold an office in city, county, borough or township government or be employed by the school district.
Letters of interest should be sent to Deisley at Red Lion Area School District, 696 Delta Road, Red Lion, PA 17356, by Friday, Sept. 28.
The appointed term ends December 2013. The appointee would have to run for election next year and win in order to keep the seat beyond that date.
