North Hills School Board seeks applicants for board vacancy

Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013, 12:21 p.m.

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.”
