Members of the El Centro Elementary School District Board of Trustees decided during a regular meeting Tuesday to interview candidates to fill an empty seat among their ranks next week.
As done in similar past situations, board members will question candidates during a public session at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the district boardroom at 1256 Broadway Ave.
After the interviews, board members will deliberate among themselves in closed session, board President Ron Hull said.
The board is not required to make a decision or take any action at that meeting. Associate Superintendent Everett Taylor reminded trustees the board has until Feb. 10 to make an appointment or call for an election.
Four candidates interested in the provisional appointment delivered letters of interest to the district's offices by the Jan. 8 deadline and will be interviewed next week. The prospective trustees are Ramona Luera Dillon, Carl A. Hinshaw, Blake L. Miles and Sedalia Sanders.
