The North Hills School Board is seeking applications from residents who want to take over the school board seat left vacant by Thomas J. Baker, who announced his resignation Tuesday.
Baker was elected to Allegheny County Council in November.
Ross and West View residents interested in the North Hills position should submit letters of intent by 4 p.m. Dec. 13 to Lori Rieger, School Board Secretary, North Hills School District, 135 Sixth Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15229.
Public interviews will be held in the North Hills Middle School large-group-instruction room at 7 p.m. Jan. 9 before an appointment is made on Jan. 16, school officials said.
The newly appointed board member will hold the seat through Dec. 7, 2015, unless he or she is elected in 2015.
Baker's resignation takes effect Jan. 1.
“It was an incredible experience working hard here on the North Hills School Board,” Baker said. “I'm proud of what we accomplished here.”

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
