The school district is giving people until June 7 to apply for an appointment to fill Roberts' post. The school board will select the person June 25.
Applicants must be a citizen of the United States, at least 18 years old, a registered voter, a resident of Illinois and a resident of the school district for at least one year before the date of appointment.
Submit letters of interest and resumes by 4 p.m. June 7 to board secretary Lisa Hichens, at firstname.lastname@example.org or to school headquarters at 335 W. Wilson St.
Roberts' resignation comes after an April election in which three experienced trustees did not run. Remaining members Cathy Dremel and Gregg Hodge were elected in 2011; Tina Bleakley was appointed to fill a vacancy in 2012, and then was elected in 2013.
Besides new board members, the district will also have a new superintendent starting July 1. Hichens will take over for Jack Barshinger, who is retiring.
