The deadline to apply was Friday at noon.
The person chosen will fill the open District 3 seat that Sue Wolstenholm had for a very short time.
She took her oath of office last week and resigned just a few minutes later.
Wolstenholm had beaten Petelle in the March primary election.
The other candidates up for the job are Lara Aaron, Dan Adler, Jon Bateman, Jeff Lickiss, Melvin McCaw, Nancy Overcash, and Phil Romanus.
The school board will choose its new member by its August 11th board meeting.
