The Marblehead School Committee and the Board of Selectmen are scheduled to hold a joint meeting to interview and appoint a new member to fill the vacant seat on the School Committee Wednesday.
Former Chairwoman EuRim Chun submitted her official resignation — effective June 30 — after ongoing tensions among committee members.
The meeting, which is open to the public, is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at Abbott Hall.
The five candidates in the running for a spot on the committee are William C. Ackerman, Rossana Ferrante Francis, Elizabeth L. Moore, V. Scott H. Solberg, and Alexa E. Squitieri.
The newly appointed board member will serve until the May 2014 town election.
Should the new member choose to continue in their seat beyond the May 2014 election, they must officially run for a position on the School Committee.
