The Saint Paul School Board is accepting applications until 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 9, from individuals interested in an interim appointment to the seven-member board to replace Steve Marchese, who is resigning to take a position with the city of Seattle.

The new member appointed by the School Board will serve until the special election for that board seat is held in conjunction with the general election on November 2, 2021. The winner of the special election will serve the remaining two years of Marchese’s term—until December 31, 2023.

School Board applicants will be notified on March 12 of any interviews. The interim appointment will be made at a special meeting of the School Board at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 16. 

For more information on the application and selection process, visit or contact board secretary Sarah Dahlke at or 612-434-1105.
