South Bend Schools searching for new board member


The May 9 death of South Bend School Board member John Stancati has the district looking for candidates to take his spot.

All school board vacancies have to be filled within 30 days. And there are a number of qualifications for all new members. Candidates must be:

  • A qualified voter within the geographic boundaries of the Corporation
  • 21 years of age or older
  • A resident of the corporation for at least one year before the election
  • A resident of the corporation for at least one year

Applications will be accepted online until May 24 and after that interviews will be scheduled with qualified candidates. The Board of School Trustees will appoint someone to take over on June 10. That person will serve the remainder of Stancati's term, which ends on December 31, 2014.
