Five candidates are running for three open seats on the Racine Unified school board.

Incumbents Wally Rendon, Kim Plache, and Don Nielsen filed their nomination papers to retain their seats.

They are being challenged by two newcomers: Bryn Biemeck of Mount Pleasant and Lisa Parham from Caledonia.

Biemeck ran unsuccessfully against Robin Vos, R-Rochester, in the November 2014 elections. Parham is the former editor of the Racine Mirror.

Board of Education terms are three years with an annual salary of $3,600.

Voters head to the polls April 7.
