LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - The search for a new board member for Jefferson County Public Schools has narrowed down to five candidates.

Thirteen people applied for the District Four vacancy after Ben Gies resigned from the seat in July to take a job with a non-profit.

The open District Four seat covers southwest Louisville.

Saundra Gibson, Debra Gray, Joe Marshall, Shameka Parrish-Wright and Cassandra Ryan will be interviewed by the school board during a special meeting on Tuesday, August 20.

Law requires that JCPS fill the seat by September 14.
