Success - Article sent! close

Elgin Area School District U-46 school board is seeking nominations to fill a vacancy on the board with the recent resignation of trustee Frank Napolitano.

Napolitano, who was elected to a four-year term in April 2013, resigned on March 21 because he and his wife moved out of the district from Bartlett to Bloomingdale.

Whoever is appointed to the seat will serve until the next election in April 2015, officials said.

Interested candidates must have lived within the school district's boundaries for at least one year prior to appointment, and meet state law requirements to serve as a board member. Candidates must be a U.S. citizen, 18 years or older, and be a registered voter in the district.

Prospective candidates also must send a letter of interest, resume, and proof of filing a statement of economic interest form with the Kane County Clerk's Office.

Applications may be mailed to: Miguel Rodriguez, Secretary to the Board of Education, School District U-46, 355 E. Chicago St., 2nd Floor, Elgin, IL 60120, or emailed to

U-46 employees are ineligible to apply, nor would anyone currently holding a public office incompatible with the role of school board member qualify. Child sex offenders also are prohibited from serving on the board.

School board members serve without pay.

The school board will select and swear in a candidate on May 5.
