The Spokane Public Schools board of directors will accept applications to fill a vacant board seat until Feb. 23.

Applicants must be 18 years old and live within the school district boundaries. The board hopes to fill the seat, which was left vacant by Bob Douthitt’s resignation, by March 22.

Applicants are asked to submit a letter describing their personal background, a current resume and a statement addressing why they want to be on the board.

Douthitt announced his resignation Thursday. He had two years remaining of his six year term. The four remaining board members will review applications and interview six finalists, said Superintendent Shelley Redinger. Those interviews will be open to the public.

The appointment will expire in November, at which time there will be an election.
