Evanston/Skokie School District 65 board member Candance Chow stepped down, effective Feb. 10, according to a news release.

Chow began serving as a member of the board in 2013, and in her time as a board member she served as board president and chair of the Finance Committee. The board is now accepting applications to fill her seat.

“On behalf of the school board, I would like to thank Candance for her seven years of service on the District 65 board,” said board president Suni Kartha in the release. “She has been a vocal advocate for children and families and a dedicated public servant, and we know her decision to resign her position prior to the end of her term was not taken lightly. We wish her and her family all the best in the future.”

Those wishing to apply for the position must submit their applications by Feb. 26. To apply for the board, candidates must be at least 18 and a citizen of the United States, as well as a registered voter and a resident within District 65 for at least a year.

The applicant selected will be announced at the March 23 board meeting, and will serve a term until the April 2021 election.
