Rockford school board has announced they will fill the board vacancy for Subdistrict E in an upcoming meeting.
The board has selected J. David Seigel from among a list of proposed candidates. Officials say they will submit Seigel's appointment for approval in a board meeting on Feb. 9.
The school board says, board member Mike Harner, who has represented the district since April 2013, announced his resignation in January and attributed it to work obligation. He was hired in June 2015 by the College of Dentistry at the University of Illinois-Chicago.
Once sworn in, Seigel's term will last through the next School Board election in April 2017.
