The Empire Union School District board will appoint a replacement for Trustee Stacie Morales, who resigned to serve on the Modesto City Schools board.
The vote was unanimous Thursday night to appoint rather than hold a special election, said Superintendent Bob Price.
Applications will be available at the district office, 116 N. McClure Road, beginning Tuesday.
The application deadline is Oct. 15. The board will hold interviews Oct. 18.
