One lone applicant for a soon-to-be-vacant seat on the North Adams school board will be interviewed on April 26 by the four remaining board members.
With the term of sitting board member Juan Gutierrez to expire on June 30, the board earlier had announced it was accepting applications from persons interested in filling that pending vacancy. The deadline for submissions was last Friday.
South Adams Schools board member and random drug testing policy committee chairman Steve Dobler recommended at Tuesday's school board meeting that the random drug testing policy be enforced at the beginning of the 2011-12 school year.
"I think it will be a good thing for our students," he said.
