Edison Local School District has been unable to fill an empty seat on the Board of Education left open after the November elections.

There were three spots up for election, but only two people ran and the district needs to fill the empty seat soon.

Superintendent Bill Beattie says whoever takes the position must understand the state of the district – a district that has not passed new money since 1977 and eliminated busing for high schoolers.

“[We need] somebody that understands what they are coming into. When you’re having financial problems … you have to make difficult decisions. We have to make sure someone is understanding of the big picture,” Beattie said.

The Board of Education is taking applications for the position through Dec. 27. The only requirement is the applicant live in the district.

The position must be filled by Jan. 31. If no one applies, a probate judge will make an appointment.
