Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D) is accepting applications for a seat on the Board of Education — again.
This is the third time this year that Baker has taken applications to fill a seat on the school board.
Baker’s office will accept applications until Sept. 19 to fill the seat vacated by Donna Hathaway-Beck (District 9).
Hathaway-Beck announced last week that she was resigning after serving nearly seven years on the board. She said she wanted to spend more time with her family.
In July, Carletta Fellows (District 7) resigned from her seat. And earlier this year, Baker accepted applications from across the county after he was given authority to appoint three new members to the reconfigured board.
Applicants interested in the latest opening must live in District 9. Applications are available on the county’s Web site or at the County Administration Building.
Baker plans to name a replacement by the end of the month, according to Christian Rhodes, the county executive’s education adviser.
