Applications for an empty seat on the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District Board of Education are submitted, the interested candidates were by a subcommittee on Jan. 5, and their eligibility determined after press time.
The seat was vacated by Ben Allen, who was elected to the California State Senate on Nov. 4. Allen then resigned his position on the SMMUSD board, starting a 60-day clock to fill the hole on the board.
The six members currently on the board will vote for Allen’s replacement on Jan. 15 in a public meeting.
