GLEN ELLYN – The Community Consolidated School District 89 Board of Education is accepting letters of interest to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of President Frank Zak, effective Aug. 1, according to a district news release.

Zak, who has served on the board since 2005, cited personal and professional factors as his reason for leaving.

"This was a hard decision for me. Serving on the Board of Education has been my passion for the past 10 years," Zak said in the release. "Looking back at our accomplishments, I am happy with the legacy I am leaving and I know the district is in good hands."

The chosen appointee will serve until Zak's term expires in April 2017.

To be eligible to be on the board, a candidate must be a U.S. citizen, at least 18 years old, a registered voter and a district resident of at least one year.

A candidate may not be a sex offender or hold any incompatible public office. Board members are subject to financial conflict of interest prohibitions as set forth in state law.

Letters of interest regarding the vacancy should be emailed by Aug. 28 to board Secretary Jill Coran at jcoran@ccsd89.org.

For other inquiries, call Coran at 630-545-3503.
