Residents interested in serving on the Racine Unified Board of Education are invited to submit an application.

District officials announced Sunday night that they are seeking an individual to fill the seat left vacant by Lisa Parham’s resignation. She gave up her seat last week, citing personal reasons, but many believe it’s because she has unpardoned felony convictions stemming from a 21-year-old forgery case against her.

School board policy dictates the seat be filled within 30 days of the vacancy. The position must have an appointee by July 2, and that person will serve until April 2018, the remainder of Parham’s term.

Anyone interested can submit their names to any board member.
