Arlington Heights Elementary School District 25 is looking to fill the school board seat of Phil Crusius, who died earlier this month, by its July board meeting. The school board is accepting applications through July 1.

The person who fills Crusius' seat will hold it until the April 2015 school board election, according to district officials. Interested applicants need to submit a letter of application and a short resume to be considered.

Applications can be obtained at Arlington Heights School District 25, 1200 S. Dunton Ave., Arlington Heights or online at

Applicants must be a United States citizen, at least 18 years of age, a resident of Illinois and the district for at least one year, and a registered voter. Applicants cannot be a child sex offender, hold another incompatible public office or have prohibited interests in contracts with the district.

"Applicants should show familiarity with the board's policies regarding general duties and responsibilities of a board and board member including fiduciary responsibilities, conflict of interest, ethics and gift ban," according to a district statement.

School board President David Page said the district will conduct interviews with candidates in the two weeks leading up to the July 17 board meeting, when he expects a vote to approve the new member. Crusius died June 3 after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was first elected to the board in 2009.
