North Kansas City School District’s Board of Education will meet Tuesday, April 24, at 7 p.m.

During tonight’s meeting, three applicants will interview for the opportunity to fill a vacant board seat. Immediately after the interviews, board members will select an applicant to serve a one-year term. The three applying for the appointment are former board members Chace Ramey and Dixie Youngers as well as veteran educator Shirley Fessel.

Tammy Henderson’s resignation created the vacancy, which came too late to be included on the election ballot earlier this month. Henderson resigned to take a job as the district’s chief communications and community affairs officer.

In addition to being taxpayers who have lived in the district for at least a year, applicants must be U.S. citizens and at least 24 years old, according to Missouri statute. School board members are citizens who volunteer without pay to determine the policies the superintendent uses to administer the district. The superintendent works for them, and they are responsible for tasks such as long-range planning, establishing the salaries and benefits of certified teachers, approving the annual budget and calling elections for tax levies and bond proposals.

Tonight’s meeting, which is open to the public, will take place at the district’s Doolin Center; 1900 N.E. 46th St.; Kansas City, MO 64116.
